How to Never Die Too Young

May we never die too soon! This does not mean dying young; It means not dying with our appointed tasks undone. It is indeed a curious fact that no one ever thinks of Our Lord as dying too young! This is because He finished His Father’s business. But no matter how old we are when we die, we always feel there is more to be done.

Why do we feel that way, if it is not because we did not do well the tasks assigned to us. Our task may not be great; it may be only to add one stone to the Temple of God. But whatever it is, do each tiny little act in union with your Savior who died on the Cross and you will finish your life. Then you will never die too young!
