.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata, Argentina, warned this week of an increasingly widespread abortion mentality in the country that “later translates into laws.” In a message to young people gathered at the Shrine of Our Lady of Lujan, the archbishop encouraged them “to look after the life of the elderly and the terminally ill, as there also the shadow of euthanasia is frequently becoming apparent in the halls of our legislatures.”

“The pilgrimage is one of oldest penitential actions which Christianity has unceasingly repeated, expressed here in Argentina through the great Marian fervor of recent weeks,” he continued. The theme of this year’s pilgrimage to Lujan, he noted, “Mother, teach us to care for life, is very appropriate for our times.”

Archbishop Aguer likewise exhorted young people “to care for the lives of children in their families, for the precarious life of those who live poor and marginalized, for the life of those who cannot receive an education.”

“Let us ask the Most Holy Virgin to teach us and help us to care for life and to proclaim this life that has its origin and its end in God,” he said in conclusion.
