Palliative Care Bill

Background briefing. If it gets to the Commons we'll be asking supporters to lobby in favour of this. Hat-tip to Care Not Killing.

Ilora, Baroness Finlay's Palliative Care Bill, which seeks to make good quality palliative care more widely accessible in England and Wales, had an unopposed second reading in the House of Lords on Friday 23 February. The bill will now proceed to a Committee of the Whole House and thence to a Third Reading. If it passes a Third Reading, then it will proceed to the House of Commons, but only if it is granted time by the Government.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
