New Book Introduced on End of Life Issues

Book on End of Life issues presented at San Antonio symposium

"A Will to Live: Clear Answers on End of Life Issues" is the second book in a series of recently launched by Basilica Press entitled "The Shepherd’s Voice," a collection of books written by Bishops in a question and answer format, addressing key controversial issues of pressing interest for today’s Catholic.

The first book of the collection was "Catholics in the Public Square," by Bishop James Olmsted from Phoenix.

Archbishop Gomez said he began considering writing this latest book in the year 2000 when his mother died after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for almost a decade. He said the memories of his mother's passing were awakened when the world "witnessed with horror the death of Terri Schindler-Schiavo. This tragic event aroused a wave of doubt in many Catholics regarding the meaning of life and death, about our final hours, about what dignified death really is and what it is not.”
