Isn’t it strange that we take more care over a funeral than over a dying person? We treat the comatose dying person as ‘a vegetable’ (what an assault on human dignity!) but treat the dead body with incredible ritual respect. Haven’t we got it backwards or at least unbalanced?
With special thanks and prayers for all who serve in hospice work and hospital chaplaincy, and those beginning their CPE this summer.
