Repugnant transactions in Europe:
"In his homily, the pope said the ill should pray to find ''the grace to accept, without fear or bitterness, to leave this world at the hour chosen by God.'' The Vatican vehemently maintains that life must continue to its natural end.
The message has special resonance in Europe. Belgium and the Netherlands have legalized euthanasia, and Switzerland allows counselors or physicians to prepare a lethal dose, though patients must take it on their own."
