Spanish bishop recalls that life has origin in God

.- Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Alcala de Henares, Spain emphasized that God is necessary for life, reason and beauty as he spoke during the Nov. 4 inauguration of a pro-life expo in Madrid.

The expo, titled, “You Had to be Born,” will remain open until Jan. 9. It is located in Madrid's cathedral and brings together the works of 24 artists.

“The Cathedral is like a womb where life is engendered for the entire diocese,” Bishop Reig Pla said during the inauguration. The message of this expo is that “Behind these thousand-year old stones, the Church is alive,” he added.

The Church calls the faithful to contemplate artistic beauty, which has its origin in God, the bishop continued. “Can there be beauty without God? Can there be order in reason without God? Can the human heart reach its goal and aspirations without God?

“The Church does not think so,” he stated.
