Nurse Caught Laughing As Patient Dies Faces Murder Charge
This episode, likely not uncommon, is produced by an abortion-indifferent society, with many hearts hardened by an ignorance (root word ‘ignoring’) of 46 years of “legal” murder of 60 million citizens. The same sclerotic self-righteous hearts, aflame with the latest virtue-signaling of high school boys from Kentucky, are now growing more enraptured with post-natal murder in cases of botched pre-natal murder.
The culture of death, in its appeal to selfish exigency and pragmatism, and so favored in our time, is now increasingly and widely accepted with blindingly momentous acceleration. Even many of our professional organizations have now abandoned their ancient charters and are becoming its agents.
There is no love of persons without authentic communion and there is no true personal communion without sacrifice. True sacrifice occurs in selfless caring for one another in good times and in bad ones, especially during the time of dependency in early life and during those days of final illnesses and death. To love fully as a human person requires us often to efface our own interests and to care for the other even at great personal cost.
Life and its respect is not the only casualty in a debased culture of death; in fact it is not the worst loss. First, for many, the memory of love will be lost and then love itself, too, will disappear. The dependent among us will no longer be loved and will forget what it is to be loved. Heartless acts by those with hollow concrete shells of hearts will inflict upon the innocent and on those in need (that is, each of us if not now but eventually.)
We will all need natural “guardian” caregivers in this life (just as we have guardian angels in our supernatural life). This episode underscores this essential need. But we must not neglect our obligation to fight to end this culture which is in love with its ease and so therefore easily able to dispense with others who are inimical to this end of self love. We must strive to (and pray to) instill in our children the precious sanctity of each and every person’s life and teach the virtue of sacrificial love, the perfect model of which is our object during this penitential season.
