CWN Editor's Note: Jesus “is calling us to work together with love and respect, and to never give up trying to find the best way forward away from this tragic and unnecessary ending of life,” a bishops’ commission stated in its pastoral letter. “While there has been many disproportionate numbers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people taking their lives, no society is immune from this sad reality. We all need to remember that Jesus who laughs and cries with us is ‘The Way, the Truth and THE LIFE.’”
