Remember to live in the moment, cherish your loved ones, and let go of unnecessary worries.

  • Patrick and Cyrus on the importance of living in the present and cherishing every moment with loved ones.
  • Karen – End of Life: Be present at all times to everyone. I was more present to my husband and it made the world of difference. He passed away a few years later and I was thankful I could love him well before the end. (19:43)
  • Jim – My kids are in their 30s and 40s and I still tell them I love them. I’d like to share a story basically a rip off of Cats in the Cradle called Father and Son. (25:04)
  • Marta – I have an aunt who I was estranged from. She is now bed ridden. Can she receive the Anointing of the Sick even though she is using marijuana edibles?
  • Patrick shares a personal story of regret and not saying something he should have (36:08)
  • Marie – When I was in college, I had this need to hear “I love you” from my parents. I would call them every week and would always be afraid to say I love you. Eventually I built up the courage and it really transformed our relationship. As children, we can initiate that with our parents.
  • Gabby – I lost my wife a few years ago unexpectedly. I could see her growing in her faith a few years before she died. We have some special needs kids and I could not handle taking care of them without the support of my daughter.
