.- 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, âwith norms or behaviors that favor abortion, euthanasia and research with embryos.â
During Easter Mass, the cardinal reminded the faithful of their duty to cooperate in social life and to combat âthe scourge of terrorism, particularly in Spain, the terrorism of ETA.â
Christians, he said, are âurged to collaborate in the defense of lifeâ and of âfundamental human rights that were not created by us, but rather âcome from God.â
Cardinal Canizares also pointed out that there is still a thirst for God present in the world today and that âfaith in the resurrection helps us to understand Godâs yes to man, his yes to the truth of reason and to rational ethics and to make it understandable to others.â
âIf we do not speak of God, if we do not bear witness to God in everything, we will always be stuck in worldly things,â he warned.
