There is so much concern among people over end-of-life issues, and that is not surprising, since there are so many factors to take into account. Making decisions for other people who are not able to do that for themselves is perhaps even more difficult than making them for ourselves.
In CCBI’s “For People in the Pews” program we cover these issues from a Catholic perspective. Our Church has some very helpful guidelines which provide some structure for making decisions.
These days there are many groups that urge us to have “The Conversation,” meaning discussions about our end-of-life issues. This is not easy to do for some of us, but the more we see the point in doing so, the more likely we are to get on with it!
