MAKING END-OF-LIFE DECISION AS AN INFORMED CATHOLIC: “In many places , quality of life is primarily related to economic means, to ‘well-being,’ to the beauty and enjoyment of physical life, forgetting the other, more profound, interpersonal, spiritual and religious dimensions of existence. In fact, in the light of faith and right reason, human life is always sacred and always has ‘quality.’ As there is no human life that is more sacred than another: every human life is sacred!” (Pope Francis, speech to the Italian Physicians Assoc.
