.- The Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani, reminded the Peruvian State this week of its duty to protect human life, “because the human person is the center of all of society.” During a Mass celebrating the Solemnity of the Lord of Miracles, Cardinal Cipriani reaffirmed that all life “is sacred from the first moment of conception” and that no person is the result of chance, but rather “the fruit of a thought of God.” “Nobody has been born by chance,” he exclaimed, “each one of us is the result of God’s love.”

Amidst debate in Peru on the legalization of abortion in cases of rape and fetal deformation as well as the morning-after pill, the cardinal said that the Peruvian people are “noble” and that the unborn do not deserve to be in danger in the womb, which ought to be a place of “warmth, tenderness, care and love.”

Cardinal Cipriani urged Peruvians to draw close to the Lord and to leave behind the corruption and abuse of today’s society. “The Holy Father Benedict XVI reminds us—following the example of John Paul II—that he who allows Christ in loses nothing, nothing that makes life free and beautiful. A friendship with the Lord of Miracles opens the doors to life,” he said.
