30: Healthcare: A Point of View from a Cardinal Diagnosed with Cancer


No other subject can be of greater interest in a world that values people for their money and not for their human qualities. Cardinal Bernardin analyzes today's situation in the field of the healthcare system while detecting possible areas of intervention. He shows us the biblical way of providing care and its possible modern applications. He examines it as a Christian and as a patient, since he has experienced healthcare systems as a result of his illness. Following him in this analysis, we also learn how precious human life is and from which perspective it should be lived. An incumbent death can be faced with dignity and hope, Bernardin teaches us. A healthcare system worthy of human society must be designed on human and religious values.
