She gave people dying of cancer, TB and AIDS aspirin for their pain, or nothing at all, and told them it was good to suffer, because Jesus liked it, when she could have given them morphine.

I'm not Catholic, but my mom and several of my friends are, and I'm not familiar with anything like this. Aren't there plenty of Catholic hospitals?
