This is Why We Go to Confession Regularly

Bobby Rhine, 35, dies of apparent heart attack - 3RD Degree - FC Dallas Blog - ESPN Dallas

I went on Twitter looking for the USA's starting XI vs. Belgium (with the match to kickoff shortly) and I found out this bit of news via Taylor Twellman. Bobby Rhine was a professional footballer who recently became a TV announcer. With that sort of life, he was certainly not in ill health. He was vacationing with his family during the international break when he died of a sudden and unexpected heart attack. This is why we go to confession regularly. "Watch ye therefore, because you know not the day nor the hour." (Mt. 25:13) Any one of us could drop dead unexpectedly at any moment. Yesterday, it was Bobby Rhine's turn to experience exactly that. None of us can predict when it will be our turn. Let us be ready to meet our Maker, for we know not the day nor the hour.

Robertus et omnes fidelium animae requiescant in pace.
