Walking with God – Louisa (1)

Louisa studied in a Catholic school but because her family is Buddhist, she didn't have the chance to be baptized. When her kids wanted to enter Catholic schools, she took the opportunity to get baptized in 1985. Since baptism she has felt very peaceful, being very aware that God is taking care of her all the time. When her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's at the age of 50, she never complained, but she just prayed that God would give her the ability to take care of him. Four years ago, her husband had to do brain surgery and was admitted to the hospital for four months. She prayed hard, and eventually her husband had a successful surgery. During that time, God had sent many “angels” to help her.

Choose Life

On this week's "Love and Life", we invited Rev. Joseph Tham to discuss with us the issue of Euthanasia. Many people have argued over the issue of Euthanasia, but God is the master of life, and only He can decide when an individual lives or dies. Although many suffering patients consider Euthanasia as an option, they do not realise that suffering in itself has meaning and value which can be offered up as a prayer to God. Finally, we must pay special care to these suffering patients, to learn to accompany and love them until the natural end of their lives.
