Pope Saint John Paul and the Gospel of Life

“Today there exists a great multitude of weak and defenseless human beings,” writes Saint John Paul II, “unborn children in particular, whose fundamental right to life is being trampled upon. 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.”

Need inspiration as we encounter the “grievous forms of injustice and oppression” on every side? Our greatest inspiration is the Truth. Why not read Saint John Paul’s Evangelium Vitae, The Gospel of Life?
