His Holiness the Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso asked the devotees to take deep breathes in and out for three times and after allowing them to do so said, there will be a moment we all have to stop this action.
On 17 November 2018 evening, conducting the sermon of the Requiem Mass to commemorate all those who dearly departed from this world, His Holiness the Apostle addressed the devotees and said, on that day we remember all those who have stopped the act of breathing.
Further addressing the devotees who assembled at Holy Apostles Peter & Paul garden of Our Lady of Katunayake’s Shrine ignoring the pouring rain, His Holiness the Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso stated, that in instances when we are sleeping, driving, eating, going to the bathroom, we may stop breathing and there will be a specific day we all have to stop this conscious or unconscious act of breathing, willingly or unwillingly and that instant is the moment of our death.
His Holiness the Apostle explained with lengthy descriptions that, to face the moment of death with comfort, a person should have a proper understanding of merits and sins and must adjust their lives accordingly. According to His Holiness the Apostle, most living people grasp the meaning of merits but not the exact meaning of sins; the sin list they know portrays an unusual story. Therefore, in their last moments of life, when they realize they have wandered in the wrong path, it is too late to correct themselves.
