His last words were so beautiful.

A video has gone viral that shows a Catholic priest's last moments. The video is of Father Gaston Hurtubise, and his sermon at the Charismatic Congress in Ottawa on June 26, 1992. Twenty five years later, his final words are being remembered.

Preaching in French, Fr. Hurtubise was delivering what would be his last sermon. He was recorded live at the Charismatic Congress in Ottawa, Canada, on June 26, 1992.

His last words were, "God is ready to open his heart to us, to establish us in him, to eternal bliss. Thank my Lord!"

Fr. Hurtubise collapsed as he thanked God.

Within seconds, people were by his side to render aid, but it was to no avail. Despite performing CPR, Fr. Hurtubise was already gone, his soul departed to be with God.

While the passing of a human life is a sad event for those who are left behind, we can think of no better way that to die in the Lord, praising God with our last breath.

May we all have the grace of a good death, and meet God with a thankful prayer on our lips.
