Message From Heaven

Took Father back to Pampa for a couple days stay after we had Mass in our home.

I will live until I die

One day at the rectory in Panhandle, Diane was crying and Fr Marianna asked "why are you crying?".  Because of the mother/son bond that formed over months of pain, suffering, recovery, and hope - she could be brutally honest with him.  She replied "I'm afraid your going to die".   He replied, I know where I am going Diane, why would this make you unhappy?  You do not need to cry - I will live, until I die.

He would continually say this phrase through the times when we feared the worst, his meaning was "I will live in Christ, until the day I die; I will not live in fear".
