The Journey Never Ends

How to Prepare a Spiritual Will
  • Foreword by Thomas Lynch
  • By F. Edward Coughlin, Mary Petrosky
$8.49
($9.95)
In the first book of its kind specifically for Catholics, theologian, spiritual director, and social worker Sr. Mary Petrosky, F.M.M., shows how a spiritual will--a document that outlines your values, intentions, and hopes for the future--can help you focus on what's most important in your life. As you grow older, it will be something you'll want to share with those you love.

The Journey Never Ends guides you through the process of preparing a spiritual will as an expression of your life's intentions. If you are a Catholic or Christian of another background, you will find this a useful tool for creating the kind of life you want to live now in order to positively impact the world around you. In addition, like a traditional will, it will help you create a legacy for your family.

Petrosky has helped people on three continents find joy and meaning in their lives and purpose and understanding in their deaths through her work. Able to communicate theological ideas in everyday language, Petrosky organizes spiritual will-making around a theology of remembering, taking as her inspiration the words of Jesus: "Do this in remembrance of me."

She provides a variety of sample wills to illustrate various approaches you can take. In the final chapter of the book, Petrosky will guide you to write your own spiritual will with simple, clear, inspirational prompts and examples. The document is something that could be shared with family, friends, and colleagues later in life.

Following the teachings of St. Francis of Assisi, who lived life with joy and welcomed his death with openness and optimism, Petrosky guides you in how to best appreciate the art of living--and the way of dying.
