Leading Holy See diplomat praises America’s youthful pro-life movement

March 18, 2015

Archbishop Bernardito Auza, the Holy See’s Permanent Observer to the United Nations, paid tribute to the US pro-life movement in a March 12 address.

“Here in the United States and across the world, the face of the pro-life movement is becoming more and more youthful,” he said. “The annual March for Life in Washington demonstrates an ever greater awareness among the young for the precious gift of life. We also see so many young faces in prayer services, prayer rallies and other forms of public witness.”

“We behold them volunteering to care for pregnant mothers in need and for the sick and elderly,” he added. “A great number of youth regularly cross the road and travel the world to help lift up the poor and needy, to share knowledge and express solidarity. They stand up against what Pope Francis calls a ‘throwaway culture.’”
