Midwife for Souls
By Kathy Kalina
Spiritual Care for the Dying
This classic work on the spirituality of caring for the dying is now expanded with moving stories and lessons gleaned from the author's experience as a hospice nurse. Midwife for Souls provides insight, showing how the support of one's Catholic faith and the power of prayer can guide one in ministering to a dying person. Written in a style that is poetic and beautiful, practical and credible, this book is essential reading for anyone who accompanies others to the edge of life—and helps in their birthing to eternal life.
A pastoral guide for hospice care workers and all who live with or accompany the terminally ill. Kathy Kalina is a registered nurse and a woman of deep faith. She offers sound advice and wisdom that she has gathered from her own personal experience. Although a committed Catholic, her profound understanding of what the dying undergo during their final pilgrimage here on earth makes the book of value to everyone, regardless of religious preference.
Special appendices include prayers and comforting scriptural passages for the dying and their loved ones.
