At such times the People of God, and this includes every believer, is called to profess with humility and courage its faith in Jesus Christ, “the Word of life” 1 Jn 1: This doctrine, based upon that unwritten law which man, in the light of reason, finds in his own heart cf.
If, at the end of the last century, the Church could not be silent about the injustices of those times, still less can she be silent today, when the social injustices of the past, unfortunately not yet overcome, are being compounded in many regions of the world by still more grievous forms of injustice and oppression, even if these are being presented as elements of progress in view of a new world order.
Increasingly, there are appearing in many places groups of volunteers prepared to offer hospitality to persons without a family, who find themselves in conditions of particular distress or who need a supportive environment to help them to overcome destructive habits and discover anew the meaning of life.
If Cain is capable of confessing that his fault is “greater than he can bear”, it is because he is conscious of being in the presence of God and before God’s just judgment. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The Church knows that this Gospel of life, which she has received from her Lord, 1 has a profound and persuasive echo in the heart of every person-believer and non-believer alike-because it marvellously fulfils all the heart’s expectations while infinitely surpassing them.
The twentieth century will have been an era of massive attacks on life, an endless series of wars and a continual taking of innocent human life. Old age is characterized by dignity and surrounded with reverence cf.
Many centres in vittae of life, or similar institutions, are sponsored by individuals and groups which, with admirable dedication and sacrifice, offer moral and material support to mothers who are in difficulty and are tempted to have recourse to abortion.
Such circumstances can mitigate even to a notable degree subjective responsibility and the consequent culpability of those who make these choices which in themselves are evil. The blood of Evngelium, while it reveals the grandeur of the Father’s love, shows how precious man is in God’s eyes and how priceless the value of his life. Murderous violence profoundly changes man’s environment. And it is pre- cisely here that the paradoxical mystery of the merciful justice of God is shown forth.
A stranger is no longer a stranger for the person who mustbecome a neighbour to someone in need, to the point of accepting responsibility for his life, as the parable of the Good Samaritan shows so clearly cf.
When he heeds the deepest yearnings of the heart, every man must make his own the words of truth expressed by Saint Augustine: It is finished’; and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit” Jn Even in the midst of difficulties and uncertainties, every person sincerely open to truth and goodness can, by the light of reason and the hidden action of grace, come to recognize in the natural law written in the heart cf.
Others are the result of situations of violence, hatred and conflicting interests, which lead people to attack others through murder, war, slaughter and genocide. It was not I who gave you life and breath, nor I who set in order the elements within each of you. Life evsngelium Religious aspects — Christianity.
El Papa Juan Pablo II: La Muerte con Dignidad
Therefore the Creator of the world, who shaped the beginning of man and devised the origin of all things, will in his mercy give life and breath back to you again, since you now forget yourselves for the sake of his laws” 2 Mac 7: Eternal life is therefore the life evanglium God himself and at the same time the life of the children of God.
Encyclicals of John Paul II book While it is true that the taking of life not yet born or in its final stages is sometimes marked by a mistaken sense of altruism and human enxclica, it cannot be denied that such a culture of death, taken as a whole, betrays a completely individualistic concept of freedom, which ends up by becoming the freedom of “the strong” against the weak who have no choice but to submit.
God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end: In Christ, the Gospel of life is definitively proclaimed and fully given. Threats which are no less serious hang over the incurably ill and the dying. The fact that legislation in many countries, perhaps even departing from basic principles of their Constitutions, has determined not to punish these practices against life, and even to make them altogether legal, is both a disturbing symptom and a significant cause of grave moral decline.
At the same time a new cultural climate is developing and taking hold, which gives crimes against life a new and-if possible-even more sinister character, giving rise to further grave concern: As the Second Vatican Council teaches: The commandment regarding the inviolability of human life reverberates vitad the heart of the “ten words” in the covenant of Sinai cf.

But, as is brought out in Israel’s later legislation, it also prohibits all personal injury encclia on another cf. Upon the recognition of this right, every human community and the political community itself are founded.

These could occur for example when, in order to increase the availability of organs for transplants, organs are removed without respecting objective and adequate criteria which verify the death of the donor. This is a great gift of the Creator, placed as it is at the service of the person and of his fulfilment through the gift of self and openness to others; but when freedom is made absolute in an individualistic way, it is emptied of its original content, and its very meaning and dignity are contradicted.
When, in accordance with their principles, such movements act resolutely, but without resorting to violence, they promote a wider and more profound consciousness of evangslium value of life, and evoke and bring about a more determined commitment to its defence. God proclaims that he is absolute Lord of the life of man, who is formed in his image and likeness cf.
In the same perspective there is evidence of a growing public opposition to the death penalty, even when such a penalty is seen as encclca kind of “legitimate defence” on the part of society.
The kingdom of heaven is at hand’.
It is precisely this blood that is the most powerful source of hope, indeed it is the foundation of the absolute certitude that in God’s plan life will be victorious. It is at the heart of the moral conscience that the eclipse of the sense of God and of man, with all its various and deadly consequences for life, is taking place. It is being demonstrated in an alarming way by the development of chemical products, intrauterine devices and vaccines which, distributed with the same ease vitaf contraceptives, really act as abortifacients in the very early stages of the development of the life of the new human being.
And he died for us while we were yet sinners cf. Such a situation can threaten the already fragile equilibrium of an individual’s personal and family life, with the result that, on the one hand, the sick person, despite the help of increasingly effective medical and social assistance, risks feeling overwhelmed by his or her own frailty; and on the other hand, those close to the sick person can be moved by an understandable even if misplaced compassion.
Detached from this wider framework, the commandment is destined to become nothing more than an obligation imposed from without, and very soon we begin to look for its limits and try to find mitigating factors and exceptions.
