Not long ago, a Belgian religious order which runs psychiatric hospitals approved euthanasia for their patients.
It seems that the Holy Father is going to let the CDF be the CDF. Let the investigation begin!
Vatican to investigate Belgian Catholic hospitals for deciding to euthanize sick people
BELGIUM, May 9, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The Vatican has launched an investigation into Catholic psychiatric care centers in Belgium run by a Catholic order after it quietly approved euthanasia for patients earlier this year.
The Vatican’s Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin is running the investigation of the Brothers of Charity after the board of the Brothers’ institutions made a decision to allow a doctor to kill their patients who “suffer.”
The head of the Brothers of Charity, Brother Rene Stockman, had strongly opposed the decision to begin euthanizing patients. It was he who brought the matter to the attention of the Vatican as well as Belgium’s Catholic bishops.
Stockman said that he hopes for a “clear answer” from his country’s bishops as well as from the Vatican.
“I wait for the clear answer of the church and that answer will be presented to our organization, in the hope that it will adapt its vision,” he told Catholic News Service May 4.
“I hope we will not have to withdraw our responsibility in the field of mental health care in the place where we started as a congregation with such care more than 200 years ago,” he added.
