Choose Palliative Care – Why Assisted Suicide?

Humminbird

This image is so beautiful and there is so much beauty in this world.  T0 feel healthy and strong is an awesome feeling.  What happens when a person is terminally ill, how do you think they feel, especially if they are having terrible pain.  Well, we do have palliative care and that is so beautiful.  People are loved and they are made to feel comfortable as they slowly approach death.  Palliative Care enables terminally ill people to die with dignity.  They are made to feel comfortable right to the very end.  Why do some people want assisted suicide?  Why are Governments for assisted suicide instead of continuing with palliative care.

Make me a Channel of Your Peace by Florence D’Costa

There are many in this world who are very unhappy and who feel that life has no meaning and they want to end their lives by committing suicide. Some people also because of their tremendous suffering and pain also want to end their lives … There is life after death and through suffering we can attain heaven. When we lose patience and want to commit suicide or when we try to ask someone’s else is to end our lives, we are surely heading off in the wrong direction – Euthanasia is VERY WRONG…..

Why do you go through so much of suffering and doubt.  Think back to the times when miracles did happen in your lives and cry out to God – Ask Him to renew your faith and believe me. He will.  He is always near and because He is Love – the greatest love – run to him and stay in His Loving Embrace.  This is the place where all of need to be in – This is where healing takes place – This is where He purifies us.  Alleluia! Alleulia! Praise You Jesus Christ – Thank you Jesus Christ –  We love you Jesus Christ.

Are the Waves of Life pulling you under?

Stronger by Mandisa

I remember when I was in the 7th grade, I very nearly drowned. A big wave was taking me out to sea and I had a fear that I was drowning. I spoke to God, then. I said, “Lord, I am not ready to come home as yet. I haven’t even begun life as yet.” I thought that I would die, but the Our Lord Jesus Christ answered my prayer. Another big wave brought me back to shore and I was so thankful that I was alive but the amount of sea water that drank as so much that water was coming out through my nose, ears and mouth. But I was alive.

So my dear friends, if you feel the waves of life is drowning you, cry out to Jesus Christ and He will help you. Jesus Christ is THE ANSWER TO ALL MY PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES and YES, HE IS THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES AS WELL.

So, be strong and brave and known that Jesus Christ is near you always.

Suffering – Can you Pray?

To those who are sick in hospitals, nursing homes, sick at home and in agonising and excruciating pain.  Is it possible for such people to praise and thank God.  For those who are suffering terrible and excruciating pain, it is highly impossible to be praising God during that time but your love for God is above all others, then your soul is in the Presence of God.  That is what is important.  Loving God all the time even without saying One Word out loud. There is one thing I would like to tell you all.  When you are suffering excruciating pain, and you know that you love God above all else then, I am sure that God is very much aware of how much you love Him and YOU CAN BE SURE THAT YOU ARE IN HIS EMBRACE.  Suffering, Happy, Sad, Laughing, Dancing, Crying, Smiling – whatever you may be doing – if you love God above all else, you can be sure that you will be FOREVER IN HIS EMBRACE and that is the safest place to be at all times.

Mount Calvary

By Florence D’Costa

Every time we make the Stations of the Cross, are we making the journey that Jesus made on that fateful day, when he was condemned by Pilate to die on a cross, 2000 years ago?  Well, Jesus Christ died and he rose again victoriously, 2000 years ago.  He is now seated at the Right hand of God and He is constantly interceding for us.  So, why do we make the Stations of the Cross atleast once week,  during the Lenten Season?

Well, for me, I journey along with Jesus on that fateful day.  I journey along with His Mother Mary.   I journey with her as I can imagine how broken she was to see her only son being condemned, scourged, crowned with thorns, robed as a king and mocked as ‘The King of the Jews” and finally He was crucified and He died between two thieves.  The Son of God, the Son of Mary who was God and Man – who knew no sin, became SIN by carrying the sins of the world on His shoulders.  He suffered and died such a humiliating death on the cross BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE FOR YOU AND ME.  He was prepared to die for us, so that we might LIVE forever with Him in Heaven.

The Old Rugged Cross by Don Meon

What happens as I journey with Jesus and Mother Mary on that fateful day?  I relive the horror of that day.  I look into the eyes of Jesus as He carries his cross.  There is so much of pain in his eyes.  He suffers physical pain, pain of rejection, humiliation, he feels alone as he walks to his death.  Crowds are jeering at him women are crying for Him.  He meets his mother and their eyes meet.  No words pass from their lips but their hearts are wrenched in two.   Which mother on earth has witnessed her innocent son who committed no sin suffer and die such a humiliating death though He was Divine and yet Man.  No mother on earth, only Mother Mary.

On the cross His greatest suffering was when He carried the sins of the world on His shoulders, He cried, MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME.  You see Sin and God cannot be united and hence Jesus felt forsaken by His Father in Heaven.  Then Jesus said besides other things, IT IS FINISHED and He gave up HIS SPIRIT.

WHEN I look at Jesus dying on the cross, I know that after I have journeyed with Jesus and His mother, I cannot be the same person.  I know now that JESUS CHRIST has given me abundant graces to become a better person.  I have learnt to be ready to accept humiliation, suffering, ridicule etc all for the love of Jesus.  JESUS WAS GOD AND MAN AND HE WAS SINLESS AND HE SUFFERED AND DIED FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.  SO I MUST ALSO BE READY TO BE LIKE MY LORD AND MASTER.

Every Christian is persecuted in different ways and we must be ready to face persecution and so journeying with Jesus during His Most terrible Passion and Death is the best way for us to be strengthened TO BE LIKE OUR MASTER – JESUS CHRIST.

So my dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ REJOICE AND BE GLAD WHEN YOU ARE PERSECUTED FOR JESUS CHRIST ROSE VICTORIOUSLY FROM THE DEAD AND HE IS NOW SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER.  SO, WE WILL ALSO BECOME BETTER PEOPLE WHEN WE FACE PERSECUTION BUT WE MUST FACE IT WITH LOVE AND FORGIVENESS IN OUR HEARTS TOWARDS OUR PERSECUTORS.

At the Foot of the Cross – Lyrics

Are you feeling burdened or stressed.  Are you worried about something that you cannot solve?  Are you sick with some terminal illness?  Feeling weak and alone?

I have some good news for you. Most importantly it is necessary to forgive all those who have hurt you and to ask forgiveness from those whom you have hurt. Then leave it all at the Foot of the Cross.

Jesus Christ died for you and for me.  Leave your burdens at the Foot of the Cross and believe that you are Loved by God and He will relieve you of your burdens, your sickness and whatever else is keeping you down.

JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU AND HE DIED FOR YOU.

Jesus Christ said, ‘YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL”.  NOW BE READY TO RECEIVE A FLOOD OF BLESSINGS.
