(Don’t Fear) the Reaper

The last Rite... no, we're not talking about some new exorcist movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the world's top exorcist (although this would be a pretty cool name for some spiritual thriller), but the Church's last rite for those who are dying ... viaticum.

 

In this episode of the So What? Podcast, Br. Luke and Br. Jude discuss viaticum, the reception of communion for those who are dying.  Many people haven't heard of it because it happens mostly in hospitals and nursing homes, but it's a powerful way that the Church helps people along the way during the most difficult of times.  So download or stream this episode to learn more and hopefully dispel any fears you have of the reaper.
