Next book for Two Saints Readers: the book discussion group for Sts. Thomas’s and Nicholas.
Do you ever wonder if you and your family will know the best ways for you to approach the time when you do not have the abilities you now have? Perhaps you have had loved ones pass away in ways or circumstances that continue to sadden you?
The book, Being Mortal, Dr. Atul Gawande, may help some of us to begin the process of figuring out ways to live during our last years and ways to best meet the time we leave our mortal bodies behind to join our God. The book can help us start the thinking process.
The Two Saints Readers will read Being Mortal and discuss the concepts it describes of thoughtful ideas, many anecdotes of real people and happenings, and results of studies conducted by caring, knowledgeable people. We will begin (usually) one-hour Zoom sessions at 10 a.m. on these Tuesdays: Jan. 19, 26, and Feb. 2, 9, 2021. We may even end on Feb. 2, 2021, but I can’t promise that.
The Newark Free Library and the library network have many copies. All the book sellers online and in stores have the paperback versions. Even if you do not want to or cannot join us, I urge you to read the book. However, when we share its concepts together, it could help make them even more real.
