Memento Mori Skull Statue


“In whatever you do, remember your last days, and you will never sin.” —Sirach 7:36.  This statue is the perfect companion resource to The Memento Mori Lenten Devotional, The Memento Mori Journal and Memento Mori: Prayers on the Last Things.  Author Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, FSP, is at the forefront of the movement to revive the “Memento Mori” tradition in the Church.  The “Memento Mori” or “remember your death” practice is an active reflection on one’s mortality in order to live a more holy life.  A concrete blend, this skull statue measures approximately 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches.  Perfect for the home or office, this piece is a unique and powerful reminder of one’s life, death, and the afterlife (traditionally known as the “Last Things”).


“The Last Things are ever new truths, powerful incentives, considerations that sanctify.  The thought of them casts a brilliant light on life and points out its true meaning.  They are sparks which set on fire a tremendous love–a love that consists in striving to reach God, our final goal and Supreme Good.”  Blessed James Alberone
