Pope encourages English, Irish, Scottish Catholics to protect human life

Catholic World News - July 17, 2013

“We must all care for life, cherish life, with tenderness, warmth,” Pope Francis wrote in a message to the Catholics of Britain and Ireland who are observing the annual Day of Life. This year’s Day for Life focuses on care for unborn children and their mothers, the elderly, and those who are suicidal and their families.

The Day of Life is celebrated on different dates in England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. The Pope’s message was released at a time when Irish public opinion is still focused on a recent vote to legalize abortion.

“Even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live for ever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect,” Pope Francis wrote.
