Church cannot remain silent in face of threats against life, says Cardinal Rivera

.- The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, has called Mexicans to rally to the defense of  life from conception to natural death, a task which he called essential and one which the Church cannot remain silent about.

During his homily last Sunday, the cardinal urged Mexicans to defend life against every threat facing it. 

“We are all aware of the diverse stages through which the human being passes, from the moment of conception until death. Jesus took on this process, illuminating human existence in all states of life,” he stated.

The cardinal went on to reproach those who believe they are wiser and more prudent than God, saying,  “The Catholic faithful must be consistent with their faith in public and in private. They cannot support death projects without betraying themselves.  On the contrary, the must support every project that supports the development of human life in all its stages and circumstances.”

The cardinal’s statements came as the states of Sinaloa and Queretaro appeared ready to join the fourteen other Mexican states that have modified their constitutions to head off attempts to legalize abortion.
