I am greatly touched by Fr. Trento’s personal experience with the terminally ill; the little I followed of Eluana’s life experience is not as haste to the very ones Father is looking after, I would imagine in worse medical settings in Paraguay. I listened to a talk show on a Catholic FM in Nairobi of people sharing views a day following the disconnection of Eluana’a feeding tube — you could feel the distaste, the anger; one listener shared an experience of his mother who is terminally ill and her insistence to be left to die, but those caring do not take it as a burden, it is their cross and possibly path to salvation.
Fr. Trento’s return of a medal of such honor was a heroic action.
ROME, FEB. 27, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Some people might give money or support to Africa because it could be considered fashionable, but the Church’s role on the continent is that of being an anchor of salvation, says a Vatican aide.
