DORMITIO (death)

On April 28, 1841, Musumusu came to Peter Chanel and asked for medical treatment. When they had gained entry to Peter’s dwelling, Muusumusu’s companions pillaged the house and he struck Peter Chanel a deadly blow. Peter’s last words before dying were “It’s good.”

Jesus said, “Amen, Amen I say to you: if the grain of wheat falling onto the earth does not die it remains alone; but if it dies it bears much fruit” (John 12, 24). Lord, grant that we may accept that we follow you in your Passion so that our lives may bear fruit. Give to young people a desire to follow you in the Society of Mary.
