Pope Francis tells National Rally for Life “Let us remember that life is a gift from God!”

By Dave Andrusko

Pope Francis praised a Let’s Choose Life rally held in Rome on Saturday, thanking them “for your dedication in promoting life and defending conscientious objection, which there are often attempts to limit.”  

The Pontiff “greeted participants in the event after praying the Regina Caeli in St. Peter’s Square in Rome,” according to the Catholic News Agency’s Joe Bukuras.

“Sadly,” the pope told attendees at the National Rally for Life, “in these last years, there has been a change in the common mentality, and today we are more and more led to think that life is a good at our complete disposal, that we can choose to manipulate, to give birth or take life as we please, as if it were the exclusive consequence of individual choice.”

Pope Francis flatly rejected that viewpoint. “Let us remember that life is a gift from God!” he said. “It is always sacred and inviolable, and we cannot silence the voice of conscience.” 

According to the website for Let’s Choose Life, the gathering “intended to affirm the dignity of human life from conception to natural death,”  Bukuras  said. “Videos and photos on the event’s Facebook page shows crowds marching and singing with signs and music.”
