Day for Life 2015
‘Cherishing Life, Accepting Death’
There have been remarkable medical and technological advances so that the chronically ill can receive life-saving treatments. We can be truly thankful for such advances. And yet at some time or other we will all die. These same advances have led to more complex decision making about appropriate treatment for those who are gravely ill.
At the end of life, there are two thoughts that can help guide us all.
The first is that we love life. Every person is loved by God and every life is a precious gift never to be destroyed or neglected. It is wrong to hasten or bring about death. God will call us in his own good time.
The second is that we accept death. This means there is no obligation to pursue medical treatment when it no longer serves its purpose – that is when treatment is having no effect or indeed harming the patient.
Prayer for a good death, the intercession of St. Joseph:
O blessed Joseph,
who breathed your last in the arms of Jesus and Mary, obtain for me this grace:
that I may breathe forth my soul in praise,
saying in spirit, if I am unable to do so in words:
‘Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
I give Thee my heart and my soul.’ Amen
Copies of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Day for Life leaflets are available at the back of the Churches.
