Pope Francis’ prayer intention for March is that bioethical issues will be approached with respect for human life and dignity.
“Biotechnological applications must always be used based on respect for human dignity,” the pope said in a video appeal issued on March 8.
“It is evident that science has progressed,” he noted, “and today the field of bioethics presents us with a series of problems to which we must respond, not hiding our head like an ostrich.”
“Let us pray that we may give a Christian response to bioethical challenges,” Francis said.
