English Transcript: 

What happens to a person driven to suicide?

Who are we to judge when the dose of human misery is just overwhelming? They may be afraid that they might do harm to others or they may just feel that they just can’t go on. God has his way of saving them too and they shouldn’t be judged as morally defective just because of having been driven through psychological horrors that we have no way of knowing.


 

Spanish Transcript: 

¿Quiénes somos para juzgar?

¿Qué le sucede a una persona que ha sido empujada al suicidio?

¿Quiénes somos para juzgar cuando la dosis de la miseria humana es abrumadora? Ellas pueden tener miedo de que pudieran hacer daño a los demás o simplemente pueden sentir que no pueden continuar. Dios tiene su manera de salvarlos también y no deben ser juzgadas como moralmente defectuosos sólo por haber sido conducidas a través de horrores psicológicos que no tenemos forma de saberlo.
