Memento Mori and Death as Catholics ft. Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble


Remember you will die. ☠️

When Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble started keeping a skull on her desk, she thought it would look cool. But she had no idea the impact the constant reminder of death would have on her faith life. As Catholics, we live in a world that constantly fears death, avoids death, and dreads death. But if we truly understand what Heaven is, death should be something we rejoice—something that powers us forward and fills us with peace and comfort. I thought there was no better day than All Hallow’s Eve to chat with Sr. Theresa about death, her journey from atheism to becoming a religious sister (a journey she’s still on!) and what the Daughters of St. Paul are all about. So whether you’re spending tonight hauling kids from door to door for candy or snuggled up with It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, I hope our episode brings a little Catholic flavor to your Halloween!
