Your will can be and should be an act of thanks to God for His blessings to you. Through it you can continue to do good on earth even after God has called you to Himself.

It is God’s will that all people be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. You can help make his will come true by remembering the mission apostolate of the Church in Your will.

“I give, devise and bequeath to the Columban Fathers, St. Columbans, Nebraska, the following property ____.”
