A review of '"I Remember Your Name in the Night. Thinking about death" by Donagh O'Shea'
Conway, Eamonn
Those who are already familiar with Fr O'Shea's reflections in books such as Take nothing for the journey (1990) will be delighted to hear from him again. His own personal journey has continued and he invites the reader to join him, this time for some meditations on life and, more specifically, on death. O'Shea speaks of the moment of death; of our fears and struggles in the face of our own impending death and that of loved ones. But he situates the death question right in the midst of life and invites us to reflect on how we are dying, and, consequently, living here and now. Thus, the book is not of relevance only, for example, to someone recently bereaved or suffering severe illness. It is for anyone who is prepared to face the transience of life and to take the risk of dis covering their own transcendent dignity.
