During his homily at the Mass for the blessing of the foundation stone for the Divine Mercy Shrine in Santiago on Sunday, Cardinal Celestino Aós Braco warned that abortion "is not mercy," nor is the "mutilation" of moral and religious teaching.
Cardinal Aós said April 24, Divine Mercy Sunday, that "it’s not mercy to kill the innocent by abortion, it’s not mercy for the child that is eliminated, nor for the mother to whom they want to present that action as a solution."
“It’s not mercy to mutilate human beings by not taking care of their development and moral and religious instruction; it’s not mercy, moving forward and abandoning the one who is left behind,” he added.
The cardinal said that “we are called to build a culture of mercy” through performing the works of mercy.
