The bishops of the dioceses in Louisiana have endorsed the recognition of National Healthcare Decisions Day on April 16 (Easter Sunday). Before signing a Living Will, know the differences between a State of Louisiana Living Will and a Catholic Living Will. The Louisiana Catholic Conference of Bishops encourage all Catholics to go to and open the documents in the "toolkit."  Two documents in particular -- "Living Will" and "Catholic Living Will" -- explain the differences between what the state says about end of life issues and what the Catholic Church says about end of life issues. Educate yourself on the issues so that you can make a morally responsible decision.  More information will be provided in the May issue of the Church Today.
