During a Mass celebrating the Day of the Unborn Child on Wednesday, Auxiliary Bishop Fernando Chomali of Santiago, Chile urged the faithful to respect the life of the unborn, saying every human has the right to exist and to flourish.
“We must never become incapable of admiration towards a human person, of giving thanks for him or her, from the time inside the mother’s womb or in any stage of his or her life. Every human life must be lived, as we are all equal in dignity, and that is one of the fundamental rights. For this reason we must care for it, respect it and promote it.”
The Episcopal Vicar for the Family, Father Marcos Burzawa, who concelebrated with Bishop Chomali, underscored the importance of celebrating the Day of the Unborn Child, calling it “a time of celebration of hope because life is always cause for joy and admiration.”
The celebrations of the Day of the Unborn Child in the Chilean capital concluded on Wednesday with a seminar on “Family and Public Policy.” Several outstanding leaders in the pro-life movement were honored at the event.
