Cardinal Vincent Nichols, President of the Bishops' Conference, has commended a new online resource on the many issues around death and dying.
The Art of Dying Well is based in the Catholic tradition but is open to all.
Launched on All Saints Day, it features real-life stories about the highs and lows of dealing with the final journey. Professionals in palliative care, ethics, chaplaincy and history have informed the site content.
The Cardinal commended this "important initiative" in his homily given at the 5:30pm Mass in Westminster Cathedral just hours after the project's launch. You can explore the site at www.artofdyingwell.org.
