WEDNESDAY MAY 4 – Join the Nationwide ‘12-Hours of Prayer for Palliative Care’
The CWL of Canada calls all people of faith to join nationwide in 12 Hours of Prayer for Palliative Care. There is a pressing need for all Canadians to have a greater accessibility to Palliative Care. It has become an urgent priority in the face of the impending legislation for euthanasia and assisted suicide.
Palliative/Hospice care is end-of-life care with true compassion. It allows individuals who are facing death not to be burdened by pain and suffering but to receive the necessary support that truly respects their human dignity both physically and spiritually rather than choosing physician-assisted death as a desperate last resort.
We invite all parishioners, family and friends to join in prayer on May4th. Please consider taking some time between 7am and 7pm to pray for greater access to Palliative Care for all Canadians and for the sanctity of human life, from conception to natural death. Let us also offer our prayers for the religious and conscience rights of Health Care institutions and Health Care Professionals.
Pope Francis reminds us of the need for prayer, mercy, reconciliation and compassion. “Let us not underestimate the power of so many voices united in prayer.” http://cwl.ca/12-hours-of-prayer-for-palliative-care-may-4-2016/
