Caring of death and pain can be rather embarrassing but, on the other hand, today nothing else than this relationship speaks so much about our existence. We need to consider the death and the illness as part of life and contemporarily to experiment a sense of solidarity for the one whom suffers and who dies. Probably, as Viktor Emil Frankl put it, the ability of suffering and of knowing oneself through suffering is a natural attitude of the human being and therefore the expression homo patiens is linked to human nature as much as homo sapiens and homo faber are, or even more.
