Papal message urges British, Irish Catholics to ‘combat the culture of death’

Catholic World News - July 23, 2014

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, has sent a message to British and Irish Catholics on behalf of Pope Francis for the Day of Life, which will take place July 27.

“The Holy Father expresses his confidence that this annual witness to the sanctity of God’s gift of life will inspire the faithful, and young Catholics in particular, to combat the culture of death, not only by working to ensure adequate legal protection for the fundamental human right to life, but also by seeking to bring the merciful love of Christ as a life-giving balm to those troubling ‘new forms of poverty and vulnerability’ (cf. Evangelii Gaudium 210) which are increasingly evident in contemporary society,” the message stated.
