When Sr. Michaela Rak opened the first hospice in Lithuania in 2009, she didn’t know she would open a whole new world for palliative care patients in this European country that used to be part of the Soviet bloc.

„Dying is a very intimate part of life. And many times, I heard people say: 'Just be with me at that moment,’ ” Rak told OSV News.
