If the journalists/blogers knew the stand of the Chatholic Church about suicide they wouldn't write such absurd articles. But more likely this is another anti-Catholic article wtiten by a Communist, Marxist journalist.

The catechism of the Catholic Church:


2280 Everyone is responsible for his life before God who has given it to him. It is God who remains the sovereign Master of life. We are obliged to accept life gratefully and preserve it for his honor and the salvation of our souls. We are stewards, not owners, of the life God has entrusted to us. It is not ours to dispose of.

2281 Suicide contradicts the natural inclination of the human being to preserve and perpetuate his life. It is gravely contrary to the just love of self. It likewise offends love of neighbor because it unjustly breaks the ties of solidarity with family, nation, and other human societies to which we continue to have obligations. Suicide is contrary to love for the living God.

2282 If suicide is committed with the intention of setting an example, especially to the young, it also takes on the gravity of scandal. Voluntary co-operation in suicide is contrary to the moral law.

Grave psychological disturbances, anguish, or grave fear of hardship, suffering, or torture can diminish the responsibility of the one committing suicide.

2283 We should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. The Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives.


The life is the God's gift, it belongs to the God. The God is the master of life and death. When a man rejects the gift having intention of rejecting the God, he/she commits a mortal sin.

But in majority cases the people commiting suicide have mental problems. They can appear as a sudden nervous breakdown or gradually develope hidden from the people around. There are many factors which influence the suicide: bad health condition, mental illness, poisoning, alcoholism, bad atmosphere in the envinronment, conflicts, the lack of the feeling of fulfilment etc.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/DmlKns only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
