Pope Francis prays for “a Christian response to bioethical challenges”

The Pope’s intention for the month of March is for “a Christian response to bioethical challenges.”

In his video message, he says that “it’s not a matter of curbing technological advances,” but about applying them in ways that uphold human dignity.

The Pope gives the example of human embryos, saying that they “cannot be treated as disposable material, to be discarded,” because that would propagate a throw-away culture.

The Pope’s video is usually published on the first day of each month, but the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network decided to postpone it because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
