THIS ONE CAN SAY THE WORDS

“Pulverized”  into dust.   “Pulvis.”    Remember, O man —   “Memento homo, quia pulvis est, et in pulverem reverteris.”

ash be there when you die

The priest of the Church can say those words.   He can honestly tell you that you were made from the “dust” of the Earth, and you will revert back to dust some day.      

A good priest, a true priest, can tell you that you are just a pile of dust . . .  for now.
