In 2014, the Catholic Bishops of Maryland revised its pastoral letter on end-of-life titled "Comfort and Consolation: Care for the sick and dying" including a special Q&A supplement and booklet that answers legal questions surrounding the end of life, including healthcare directives.
Together, these offer moral and practical guidance when considering the complex issues involved in making end-of-life decisions, and have been drafted with extensive input from Catholic ethical, medical, and legal professionals.
