Well I don't think you can charge someone for killing themselves. __________________ That's true, but if you attempt suicide and live, as so many maimed unfortunate people… do, then you can be charged for a lot of expenses. Suicide also nullifies life insurance policies, so it costs a lot more for the people left behind. It is a big mess all around. My mom worked in a hospice taking care of several people who had tried to commit suicide and just succeeded in making their lives more unbearable (one guy tried to shoot himself, and his gun slipped and he blew his face off, but didn't touch his brain... so he had to live with an open wound for a face... for a long time).

It would be double-devil bad business if the Head of the Church sinned against the Holy Spirit in such as gross fashion. Popes ( owing in part to the age factor) have died fai…rly young in their tenure- but suicide- it is out of the question.

There was a strange mix of folk medicine and evolving science during this period. Distinguished physicians often recommended smoking for their tense patients, so ignorance was a common occurrence in medical circles of the time.
