Salt and Light hosts roundtable on palliative care in Canada

Salt and Light hosts roundtable on palliative care in Canada

(Vatican Radio) Canadian media foundation Salt and Light on Friday will be airing a round-table conversation featuring interfaith leaders speaking on the “Dignity and Sacredness of the End of Life.”

The discussion will feature Rabbi Baruch Frydman-KohlCardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto, and Imam Dr Abdul Hai Patel, and will be hosted by Fr Thomas Rosica, CSB, the founder of Salt + Light.
Entitled “Towards a Comprehensive Pan-Canadian Palliative Care Strategy,” the conversation will centre around end-of-life care, especially in light of new Canadian legislation on end-of-life issues – especially with regard to the so-called “right to die,” a euphemism meaning the right to control the circumstances in death. Participants in the round-table will discuss true palliative care, and authentic medical and pastoral care for the dying.
