Memento Mori

Nave, back wall
It has ever been the practice of the Catholic Church to recommend to her spiritual children the meditation on man's four last things: 
Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell. 
Keeping these sobering aspects of human destiny ever before our eyes, we will be that much less likely to fall into mortal sin and be lost eternally. 
          - Fr. Martin von Cochem, O.S.F.C.
