As an Assumptionist priest and chaplain working in the Hautepierre Hospital in Strasbourg, France, Denis Ledogar has spent much of his life comforting, consoling and learning from those in the last stages of life. In this book, he presents testimonies of patients he has encountered who candidly share their thoughts on life, loss and illness as they contend with the spectre of mortality.

This book explores the delicate subject of the accompaniment of the human being at the end of life' and is centred on seven stages' which the author has seen in those approaching death. This moving account of one man's experience offering pastoral care to the terminally ill demonstrates how a patient's final days can be lived with dignity and meaning and how, in ministering to those who are ill, we demonstrate that it is only love that breaks open the tombs.'
