The appearance of the strictest respect for legality is maintained, at least when the laws permitting abortion and euthanasia are the result of ehcclica ballot in accordance with what are generally seen as the rules of democracy. And this comes about through obedience to God’s holy Law: The fullness of the Gospel message about life was prepared for in the Old Testament.

Evangelium Vitae

Human life and death are thus in the hands of God, in his power: We see this attested in the many biblical passages which respectfully and lovingly speak of conception, of the forming of life in the mother’s womb, of giving birth and of the intimate connection between the initial moment of life and the action of God the Creator.

Throughout his earthly life, Jesus had indeed bestowed salvation by healing and doing good to all cf. The crowds enxclica the sick and the outcasts who follow him evangelim seek him out cf. Today not a few of the powerful of the earth act in the same way. The State is no longer the “common home” where all can enxclica together on the basis of principles of fundamental equality, but is transformed into a tyrant State, which arrogates to itself the gitae to dispose of the life of the weakest and most defenceless members, from the unborn child to the elderly, in the name of a public interest which is really nothing but the interest of one part.

Evangelium Vitae – Wikipedia

Enclosed in the narrow horizon of his physical nature, he is somehow reduced to being “a thing”, and no longer grasps the “transcendent” character of his “existence as man”.


We find ourselves not only “faced with” but necessarily “in the midst of” this conflict: Created to exercise dominion over the world, he was given a likeness to the king of the universe; he is the living image who participates by his dignity in the perfection of the divine archetype”. But today the prob- lem goes far beyond the necessary recognition of these personal situations.

Thus it is proposed to eliminate malformed babies, the severely handicapped, the disabled, the elderly, especially when they are not self-sufficient, and the terminally ill. Man’s life comes from God; it is his gift, his image and imprint, a sharing in his breath of life.

In the background there is the profound crisis of culture, which generates scepticism in relation to the very foundations of knowledge and ethics, and which makes it increasingly difficult ejcclica grasp clearly the meaning of what man is, the meaning of his rights and his duties.

At other times, Jesus speaks of “eternal life”. Increasingly, there are appearing in many places groups of volunteers prepared to offer hospitality to persons without a family, who find themselves in conditions of particular distress or who need a supportive environment to help them to overcome destructive habits and discover anew the meaning of life.

Contraception and Evangelium Vitae: Books by The Catholic Church. Contraception, sterilization and abortion are certainly part of the reason why in some cases there is a sharp decline in the birthrate. Cain said to the Lord,?

We cannot but think of today’s tendency for people to refuse to accept responsibility for their brothers and sisters. All this explains, at least in part, how the value of life can today undergo a kind of “eclipse”, even though conscience does not cease to point to it as a sacred and inviolable value, as is evident in the tendency to disguise certain crimes against life in its early or final stages by using innocuous medical terms which distract attention from the fact that what is involved is the right to life of an actual human person.


In such a perspective we can grasp the full truth of the passage evangeliuk the Book evangleium Deuteronomy which Jesus repeats in reply to the first temptation: This will only be possible thanks to the gift of God who purifies and renews: He admonishes him, reminding him of his freedom in the face of evil: Even an enemy ceases to be an enemy for the person who is obliged to love him cf.

If any one slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold’. The Gospel of life is both a great gift of God and an exacting task for humanity.

The theory of human rights is based precisely on the affirmation that the human person, unlike animals and things, cannot be subjected to domination by others. It is really only before the Lord that man can admit his sin and recognize its full seriousness.

Among the signs of hope we should also count the spread, at many levels of public opinion, of a new sensitivity ever more opposed to war as an instrument for the resolution of conflicts between peoples, and increasingly oriented to finding effective but “non-violent” means to counter the armed aggressor. Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth’ ” Gen 1: And how can we fail to consider the violence against life done to millions of human beings, especially children, who are forced into poverty, malnutrition and hunger because of an unjust distribution of resources between peoples and between social classes?
