Life is a Gift, is a story about a young girl's faith in the midst of very troubled times. After being involved in a serious accident the struggles of wanting to live become alive, even as her world quickly becomes dark. No one but God can work the miracles that Skye prays for. Will her life change forever? Or will she stand firm believing that God works all things for good to those who love him?
In the midst of this darkness my heart rejoices because I see life as a gift. I could

In candid interviews, terminal patients in the Alive Hospice program talked with authors Bob and Judy Fisher, addressing some of the most important questions we ask about our life and how we've made the journey. These end-of-life ponderings are collected into inspirational and provoking thoughts that will encourage each of us to live life fully. Each story is reflected in thematic chapters-priorities, family, simple pleasures, romance, integrity, regret, forgiveness-crafted into a series of "lessons learned," offering motivation to approach life with more vigor. These powerful stories deliver the clear message that if you wait to really live until you know you are going to die, you risk missing much of the joy life has to offer and the chance to leave a positive legacy.
Whycan't we seetheblessings of our lives yesterday and today andcelebrate

These papers, first presented at a conference at Georgetown U., consider the clinical and technical aspects, the moral-theological foundations, and the impact on legislation and public policy of these reproductive technologies in light of the Vatican Instruction, which is also included.

Spirituality American Style, Matthew Fox. Blueprint for moderns seeking to renew faith in an age of cultural upheaval.
From the point of view of those who believe in Jewish and Christian Scriptures,
life is indeed a gift. The Christian word for life is "grace," which means thanks in
almost any language except English (and if it means thanks it implies gift).

Issues of death and dying - particularly concerning euthanasia, assisted suicide and dying with dignity - have taken a new prominence in the minds of people today. Meanwhile, the Catholic Church has, by and large, abstained from participating in the debate beyond condemning all taking of innocent life as gravely immoral.
In that sense , medical ethics must be pro - life . In this respect modern medicine
