LOVE, DEATH AND ETERNITY VIRGINIA BAINBRIDGE Companion, all Saints' Sisters of the Poor On Death and Dying is the title of the book by Dr Elizabeth Kubler-Ross M.D., which helped to start the hospice movement in America. The book drew on her experience as a young Swiss medical student at the end of World War Two. She questioned the medical assumption that lives must be prolonged at all cost ? because Science has not proved there is life after death. A clergyman at a church I attended was speaking about his ministry to patients in the local hospice. He was surprised to find it was the Christians who were most afraid of dying. All the great faiths teach that death is not the end, but this belief is strongly rejected by education, the media and most of the population.
