Vatican spokesman echoes Pope’s call to protect unborn

Catholic World News - December 06, 2010

Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See Press Office, has echoed Pope Benedict’s call, made at the recent worldwide vigil for nascent human life, to protect the lives of unborn children.

“We were never merely ‘a lump of biological material,’” said Father Lombardi. “We have always been from the very beginning a concrete project that developed toward intelligence, freedom and love, open to the true, the beautiful, the good, the infinite. A project that cannot but be born from a mysteriously great source, capable of being our origin and to call us to a concrete relationship of love.”

“The smile of children, from the moment they are born, allows us to intuit this,” he added. “It is a contagious smile, which invites us to love and to thank, in the wonder over a gift that is greater than us.”
