“The height of arbitrariness and injustice is reached when certain people… arrogate to themselves the power to decide who ought to live and who ought to die” – Evangelium Vitae, 66.
Reflection: When people ask me about the right to die, I say, Don’t worry — you won’t miss out on it. A right is a moral claim. We do not have a claim on death; it has a claim on us! It is our duty to surround our dying brothers and sisters with all the love and care we can.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, you conquered the power of death. May we seek freedom from its power only in you! Amen!
