What is Pastoral Thanatology Pastoral Thanatology and care of the dying stems not only from a social call of kindness, but also comes from God. It is a Christian call, but a religious call as well. As humans we are called to care for the needs of the dying. This is the basis of society, but within a religious calling, it becomes more than a good deed but a vocational call and act of charity that transcends the physical world. It is a calling to care not only for the physical needs of the dying but also the spiritual needs.
