paralytic  EUTHANASIA. 

Life is a gift of God. It is only God who can give life and only God can take it away. 
The euthanasia debate is a likely follow-up from a society that has forgotten God. If the true God is replaced by the false gods of money, efficiency, pleasure or power, what value has life? Why not give an aged or sick person a needle?
By and large we have lost our sense of sin. So we don't know a God to whom we have to answer for our lives We may find all kinds of reasons for our actions, but there is a lot that is our responsibility. We can fool many, but not God.  If we lose the sense of having to answer to God, we'll try anything - if we lose our spiritual values, we'll soon lose our material values.
Many of those who advocate euthanasia show little sigh of a belief in life after death. They want man and woman to be supreme.
No one should be asked to suffer unnecessary pain, but, as Christians we have no doubt the suffering of Christ redeemed the world. Just try taking the Crucifix out of a church and see that belief come to life.
Our own pain has real value. It is a prayer linking us to the suffering Christ. He told the Disciples on the way to Emmaus that He had to undergo His suffering before He could enter glory. We cannot be like Jesus Christ in just the nice things. Being close to Him means the lot; it is not a cafeteria faith.
Many do make tremenduos spiritual growth in  illness. It is a chace to straighten things out. In days gone by,  when we were not as self-centred, we offered our sufferings to God for others. That idea is still valid. (Fr. Kevin Ryan, In the Family).
