I had no idea, however, just how happy that death was until reading what Brown had to say here.
Talk about the most happy of deaths! I'll admit I shed a couple tears reading how beautiful his passing was. We can only hope to taste a fraction of that joy upon our own.
O, Blessed St. Joseph, you give forth your last breath in the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary. When the seal of death shall close my life, come with Jesus and Mary to help me. Obtain for me this solace for that hour; to die with their holy arms around me. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph I commend my soul living and dying into your arms. Amen.
