The Misguided Lord Carey

The 87 year old Lord George Carey, made the news because he recently wrote to the Health and Social Care Committee of the British Parliament supporting the introduction of Assisted Suicide on the grounds that it is 'profoundly Christian.'  He wants to ensure that “no-one suffers against their will.”

Carey says that it is an “act of great generosity, kindness and human love” to help dying people to end their lives. The full text of his letter is not available. (The H&SC Committee is investigating the question of assisted suicide in the UK.)

Lord Jesus Christ, pierce my soul with your love so that I may always long for you alone, who are the bread of angels and the fulfilment of the souls deepest desires. May my heart always hunger for you, so that my soul may be filled with the sweetness of your presence.
