Day 296: The Sin of Euthanasia (2276-2279)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise and glory and we thank you. We thank you for bringing us to this day, for bringing us to this moment. Lord God, for all of those people around us who suffer, all those people whose suffering seems like it is unending, for all those people and families who feel like they have a death sentence, and they are simply waiting out the death and are tempted for this euthanasia, tempted to murder others out of compassion or to murder themselves out of pain, out of fear. We ask that you please send your Holy Spirit of wisdom to prevent them from doing this. Send your Holy Spirit of truth, so they can see clearly in the midst of what might be a foggy and very, very unclear road ahead. We ask that you please send your Holy Spirit into their lives right now and be with them. Be with all of us that we not only hear the truth and know the truth, but we can also live the truth if we ever get to that moment. That if we ever face that temptation, help us to face it with grace, with your help, the help that comes from you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
