I agree with Catherine Pepinster, though I admire John Paul’s example of endurance and have benefited from it (for I have physical hassles myself). Jesus endured a public death, the terror of which was open to all. Is it the gift of God that our deaths, whenever possible, should be surrounded by intimacy and peace?

As the daily office of Compline (prayer at the end of the day) says, “The Lord almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.”
