Pope says Doctors should spread The Gospel of Life

In recent days we have all experienced the media frenzy concerning the interview conducted by Antonio Spadaro, SJ. and published in America Magazine. I would recommend to all, before reading about the interview in the media publications, on and off line, read the article in its entirety HERE

We can all rest assured that the Holy Father is not changing Church teachings. He wishes us to "not only" speak of the attacks on the dignity of the person, but also for us to make known the great mercy of God - by acts of love and compassion, and forgiveness. Maybe we all have fallen short on these important aspects of Church teaching.

As for attacks upon the dignity of the human person, the Holy Father had these words to say while speaking to a group of gynecologists at the Vatican.

Every unborn child, although unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of Jesus Christ, the Lord’s face,” Pope Francis said, adding that like Christ, these aborted children experience the rejection of the world."

 “In the fragile human being each of us is invited to recognize the face of the Lord, who in his human flesh experienced the indifference and loneliness that often condemn the poorest” members of society."

Diana Nyad "Your never too old"

"Never, ever give up,'' Nyad, 64, said after becoming the first person to swim from Havana to the southernmost point in the continental United States without the assistance of a protective shark cage.

"You're never too old to chase your dreams,'' she added.

We have to agree, it is quite an accomplishment.   Remember, we can accomplish many things - if we have faith, and build up that faith with prayer. We can even move mountains.
