Hope Overcomes Suffering

Being Catholic has provided me with a unique perspective on health, illness, suffering and death. My practice is heavily influenced by my faith and my purpose in this profession is continually being shown to me in often astonishing ways. In my personal and limited experience, hopelessness is experienced when people find themselves suffering without a foreseeable possibility of coming to a quality of life that outweighs the suffering. This is where issues such as euthanasia and abortion come into play and where God has placed me in a position where I can witness to His love and compassion. There are so many simple but loving ways that God can use us to bring hope to others. Aspects of my Catholic faith such as prayer, the Sacraments and the grace of God allow me to develop my relationship with Jesus and consequently develop more loving relationships with others. Kirsten Barrett is a nursing student at the University of Calgary.
