A Pastoral Reflection on Medical Assitance in Dying

Revised version
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

In our Catholic tradition we often refer to the Church as our Mother. We perceive her as a
mother who lovingly accompanies us throughout life, and who especially wishes to support and
guide us when we are faced with difficult situations and decisions. It is from this perspective that
we, the Bishops of the Atlantic Episcopal Assembly, wish to share with you this pastoral reflection
on “medical assistance in dying”.
