24 February: Death in 2015: Denial & Nihilism
Our culture’s schizophrenic way of dealing with death has deep roots. These causes affect us all, and pose a real challenge to persevering in Christian hope. Some of them go back to the origin of death in the first place, and the tragedy of the Fall and man’s separation from God. (Handout 1)
Isn’t it perverse to speak of a ‘good death’? And yet the Church has a long tradition of teaching the ars moriendi: the art of dying well. What does it mean to die well? How can we prepare for it practically speaking, both for ourselves and others? (Handout 2)
It’s not only the Last Rites that are meant to prepare Christians for death. In a certain sense, the whole Christian life—from the sacrament of Baptism, through the rhythms of liturgical prayer, to the Word of God in Scripture—is about shaping our souls for death. (Handout 3)
Why bother praying for the dead? Can it do any good for them? Can it do any good for us? If so, what does it mean for Catholic funerals, for the loved ones left behind, and for our own souls? We’ll consider the danger of presumption, the grace of final perseverance, and the communion of saints. (Handout 4)
31 March: Death Has Been Swallowed Up in Victory
Holy Week is upon us, and soon Lent will reach its climax with the the Passion and Death of Our Lord on Good Friday. The very fact that we call it Good Friday is telling: Christ has won the victory over death and the grave. What does that mean for us as Christians? The grand theological conclusion of our Lenten retreat will attempt to bring together these great mysteries and understand their meaning for how we live our lives. In short: if the Resurrection is true, nothing can ever be the same again. (Handout 5)

ABOUT LIVING EVERYDAY WITH PASSION & PURPOSE
Living Everyday with Passion & Purpose led by Matthew Kelly, invites us all to identify God's voice in our lives and the specific purpose for which we've been created. Matthew inspires attendees to apply the genius of Catholicism to every aspect of our lives including prayer & spirituality, work, dating & marriage, personal finances, health & well being, parenting, and community involvement. Matthew Kelly, and musician, Eliot Morris, prepares a unique message inspired by God and the teachings of the Church that promises to radiate in your life. Consider this: most people take more time to plan their annual vacation than they do to discover the voice of God and His plan for their life.
Join us for one of our Passion & Purpose events. It's not your typical church event! It has been a life-changing event for tens of thousands of people.
Tickets can be purchased here for $39.
