The Sisters of St. Joseph on Life and Death

The NY Times ran an interesting article last week on the approach taken by the Roman Catholic nuns of St. Joseph in New York State.

“We approach our living and our dying in the same way, with discernment,” said Sister Mary Lou Mitchell, the congregation president. “Maybe this is one of the messages we can send to society, by modeling it.”
I found the article, and the views presented to be thoughtful an interesting. It shows that the debate on end of life issues need not be so polarized -- there may be a common ground for us all.
