Joachim Viens Quotes

 “I would prefer what I have described as a peaceful death, not the wild death which results from technological brinkmanship!  I would like to be conscious as close to death as I can, while having extreme pain managed so that my dying can be a human act, giving my life back to God in gratitude and hope; I would like my beloved wife and loving friends to be present, praying for me and touching me.”

“How can I live my life today   So that when the day comes to give my life back to God, I can do so with joy and happiness?”
