Pastors and people must protect life, Pope reminds Brazilian bishops

Catholic World News - October 28, 2010

Church leaders “have a grave duty to pronounce moral judgments" on political issues, Pope Benedict XVI told a group of visiting Brazilian bishops on October 28.

The Pope told the Brazilian prelates—who were finishing their ad limina visits—that their country faces “shadows” cast by campaigns that threaten human life and marriage. Urging them to fight against these campaigns, the Pope said that any social involvement “that does not comprise the vehement defense of the right to life from conception to natural death is completely false and illusory.”
