Cicely Saunders' 1996 foreword to Michael Kearney's Mortally Wounded contains the memorable and much quoted phrase ‘The way care is given can reach the most hidden places and give space for unexpected development’. This book, written by one who had trained at St Christopher's, and with its detailed exploration of the concept of ‘soul pain’ is a remarkable testimony to her teaching and wider vision of care.
