.- During a Mass marking the Day of Obstetrics, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani called on the country’s obstetricians to not only acquire an adequate professional, but also a moral formation, in order to always respect human life.
In his homily for the Mass celebrated at the Cathedral of Lima, Cardinal Cipriani also recalled that at a time when immorality in human relationships is rampant, the love of God is the only source of joy in life, “but it is difficult, and therefore you need to make use of prayer and confession.”
“If the heart is made for love, use it for loving. But don’t allow vice to enter into it, because a person who does not know how to love is of no use,” he added, underscoring that “we must be vigilant because there is a culture that wants to spread pornography and turn the body into an object of pleasure and trample upon human dignity.”
At the conclusion of the Mass, Cardinal Cipriani received an acknowledgement for his pastoral work by the Professional College of Obstetricians of Peru.
