Praying Again

The Pope may have been given last rites. I am a majorly lapsed Catholic, but as a Pole and a Catholic, he remains one of my heroes and a spiritual leader, eventhough I am often at odds with the teachings of my Church or his personal stands. Hard to explain, I guess. Probably my upbringing. My Grandma (may she rest in peace) was ferevently Catholic and proudly Polish, and she had pictures of Pope John Paul II all over her house and then ours when she lived with us.
Linking again to Andrew Sullivan, he has a great discussion of the Church's stance on artifically extending life. Again, I encourage you to read it, here and here.
