For a Christian response to bioethical challenges

March 2022

The Pope's prayer intention (March 2022)

We pray for Christians facing new bioethical challenges; may they continue to defend the dignity of all human life with prayer and action.

Every human life is precious in God's eyes!

God has gifted every single one of us with intelligence and conscience. This can lead to big discoveries that can help the way we live. As Christians, we know that every human life is important, has a purpose and should be protected at all stages. You may have many questions about this: the Tweeting with GOD app can help you find answers.
