To all hospice professionals and volunteers of palliative care centers. Let's join in SOLIDARITY and prayer, in deep pain after the loss of John Paul II, the spiritual Father of all Hospice and Palliative Care Movement. Let's ask God to let him will still be our guide-post and light in our service for those suffering and dying in our care and for their families. Let's pray by our work and acts.
