When friends and strangers alike have walked up to us saying, “I’m really scared.” Sometimes even shaking, but definitely talking to us with a noticeable posture that accelerates their words in our minds.
“What makes you so scared?”
“I won’t have anybody to pray for me after I die,” they say.
Inquisitively, I ask, “Why not?”
“Because my wife isn’t Catholic, nor do my Catholic children pray,” they respond with a broken voice and timid movements.
