COMMENT OFFRIR DES SOINS PALLIATIFS AUX ENFANTS DONT LES POSSIBILITES SONT LIMITÉES ET MENACÉS DANS LEUR SURVIE – C’ EST UN APPEL AU ROYAUME DONT NOUS POUVONS TOUS PROFITER

Lorsque le cœur s’ouvre, Dieu peut entrer – « c’est par la blessure que la lumière peut pénétrer en nous. (Rumi).

Le temps de Noël est un appel à tous les chrétiens de réfléchir sur ce que nous appelons l’incarnation – Dieu qui nait en petit enfant destiné à souffrir et à mourir entre les mains de ceux dont Il menaçait le pouvoir. Ce blog est une réflexion sur comment, membre de la communauté, nous pouvons être au service de l’incarnation dans des enfants gravement malades et leurs familles en leur apportant, tout comme les rois mages, les dons de nous-mêmes et nos trésors.

КАК ОКАЗАНИЕ ПАЛЛИАТИВНОЙ ПОМОЩИ ДЕТЯМ СТРАДАЮЩИМ СЕРЬЕЗНЫМИ ИЛИ НЕИЗЛЕЧИМЫМИ ЗАБОЛЕВАНИЯМИ ОДАРИВАЕТ НАС ВСЕХ.
Когда сердце разбивается Бог может вступить. “Рана – это место, через которое в тебя входит свет” Руми (Джалаладдин Руми, выдающийся персидский поэт-суфий).

Рождество даёт нам возможность задуматься над тем, что мы называем Воплощением, или Богом рождающемся в младенце, которому суждено страдать и умереть от рук тех, чьей власти он угрожал. Этот блог о том , как мы, члены общества, можем служить Воплощению преподнося, как волхвы дары и самих себя тяжелобольным детям и их семьям.

HOW PROVIDING PALLIATIVE CARE  FOR CHILDREN WITH LIFE-LIMITING AND LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS CALLS IN THE KINGDOM AND BENEFITS US ALL

When the heart breaks God can come in.  The wound is the place where the Light enters you,” Rumi.

The Christmas season calls Christians to reflect on what we call the Incarnation, or God taking human birth in a little child destined to suffer and die at the hands of those whose power he threatened. This blog reflects on how we, as community members, can serve the Incarnation in the persons of seriously ill children and their families, bringing gifts, like the Magi, of ourselves, our treasure.

HOME BASED PALLIATIVE CARE FOR CHILDREN

Guest Blog by Dr John Collins

Throughout the world, the preferred location of care for children receiving palliative care is  home for the majority of the time. At times hospital and hospice care are needed, but most families desire to be at home with their children, or close to home, for as long as possible. Home is where families feel most empowered to be themselves in their ordinary routines, with a minimum of rules and regulations. Home better supports the needs of siblings in their ordinary routines to attend school, for example. Home also better supports the needs of an extended family to visit and offer support. (more…)

Guest Blog by Sister Frances Dominica

The greatest tragedy any family can face is the death of a beloved child. It can and does happen in every part of the world, it always has and always will. The way in which society copes with such an event varies from culture to culture. Families have often felt alone in this tragedy, whether in the setting of a state of the art intensive care unit or on a pavement in a slum city. (more…)
