Reflections on the Last Words of the Saints
I Am Going

This remarkable collection of quotations and reflections takes its name from the dying words of Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity, a Carmelite nun who died in 1906: “I am going to Light, to Love, to Life!”

Saints like Elizabeth are our heroes and members of our family, our brothers and sisters in Christ. The dying words that have been preserved offer us a treasure trove for reflection. Award-winning author and acclaimed educator, Sister Kathleen Glavich has carefully selected the words of eighty-nine saints—some popular, some little known—as the focal point for reflections on essential Christian themes, including:

  • Afterlife
  • Discernment
  • Forgiveness
  • The Importance of Little Things
  • Kindness
  • Mary’s Magnificat
  • Our Longing for God
  • Positive Peer Pressure

Each entry opens with a brief biography followed by the saint’s last words, a reflection, and a suggestion for taking the saint’s words to heart. The book also includes an appendix of select prayers, patron saints, and a liturgical calendar of feast days. Fourteen drawings by Christopher Santer bring the saints to life and are, in their own way, a source of reflection and inspiration

A few of the saints in this collection: André Bessette, Andrew Kim Taegon, Bernadette, Charles Lwanga, Dominic, Elizabeth Ann Seton, Frances of Rome, Gemma Galgani, Jeanne Jugan, John Paul II, Josephine Bakhita, Julie Billiart, Kateri Tekakwitha, Mary Magdalene de Pazzi, Paul Miki, Rose of Lima, Stephen, Teresa of Calcutta, Thomas More,Vincent Ferrar, Wenceslaus
