The Archbishop of Toledo, Spain, Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, said this week that while the struggle for the defense of life today is difficult, it will intensify in the coming years, “with norms or behaviors that favor abortion, euthanasia and research with embryos.”
During Easter Mass, the cardinal reminded the faithful of their duty to cooperate in social life and to combat “the scourge of terrorism, particularly in Spain, the terrorism of ETA.”
Christians, he said, are “urged to collaborate in the defense of life” and of “fundamental human rights that were not created by us, but rather “come from God.”
Cardinal Canizares also pointed out that there is still a thirst for God present in the world today and that “faith in the resurrection helps us to understand God’s yes to man, his yes to the truth of reason and to rational ethics and to make it understandable to others.”
“If we do not speak of God, if we do not bear witness to God in everything, we will always be stuck in worldly things,” he warned.
