Some or many of us, we don’t really yet know for sure, will face the Corona virus. The frail and elderly don’t fare too well when stung by this bug. In ‘Human Pain Contains Good News,’ Saint Pope John Paul II reminds us that “dying is part of life” and that “The believer can trust in the Lord’s promise: “Because I live, you will live also (John 14:19).”

In 1998, John Paul II states to the staff and residents of the Renneweg Hospice in Vienna, Austria: “the hospice makes one understand that dying means living before death, because even the last phase of earthly life can be lived consciously and organized individually. Far from being a ‘home for the dying,’ this place becomes a threshold of hope, which leads beyond suffering and death.”
