The Art of Dying Well

The Art of Dying Well is a new website that offers a helping hand to those grappling with issues around death and dying. Based in the Catholic tradition but open to all, it features real-life stories about dealing with the journey through death to eternal life.

The website was launched in this month of November, the traditional month of remembering and praying for the dead.

A Visit To The National Shrine Of St. Jude, Faversham, Kent

by Marguerite Cook

A loyal group of parishioners in my church of St. Joseph’s Bedford pray the rosary before daily Mass. At the end of the rosary prayers, a single voice calls out, “St. Jude, pray for us”. The voice belongs to a lady called Bernadette, and she is not alone in her love of St. Jude, the apostle and martyr; Patron of Hopeless Cases. St. Jude has devout followers in every corner of the world and thousands of people visit St. Jude’s Shrine in Faversham, Kent.
