“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Catholic Archbishop
Richard Smith addresses Catholic
laity about euthanasia
& assisted suicide
The Canadian Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton has hosted a 5-part series on assisted suicide and Catholic responses and understanding. Five sessions entitled "Every Life Matters" (ELM) were held at different locations throughout the archdiocese about these important topics. The sessions included prayer, personal witness, medical and legal expertise, and teaching from the Most Reverend Richard Smith, Archbishop of the Archdiocese. Each session also included time for questions and answers from audiences and from webcast viewers. You can watch each of the five sessions by clicking here  http://caedm.ca/ELM-EasterSeries.aspx 

Other bishops should follow Archbishop Smith's lead and explain Church teaching about assisted suicide and euthanasia and palliative services available people in their time of need.
