Reflecting true compassion

December 3, 2011 in Question of the Week, Spotlight Answers, What are your thoughts about organ donation? by Mark Matheny

What are your thoughts about Father Val’s donation as well as organ donation in general? Have you stated your intent to be an organ donor on the back of your driver’s license? Why or why not? Do you know anyone who has donated organs or received organ transplants?

Father Val’s generous act is yet another in a long line of things he has done that reflect true compassion. I am glad to also have this possibility on my driver’s license, and urge everyone to consider it. It’s a great way of sharing. I know several grateful transplant recipients, and I was especially struck by the recent testimony kidney recipient Alonzo Mourning gave at the National Civil Rights Museum Gala.
