Let's Play a Game

Yesterday evening I posted the following on facebook:
Let's play a game! 
Without looking it up, can you guess who said/wrote this: 
"On the other hand, it is troubling that, when some ecological movements defend the integrity of the environment, rightly demanding that certain limits be imposed on scientific research, they sometimes fail to apply those same principles to human life. There is a tendency to justify transgressing all boundaries when experimentation is carried out on living human embryos. We forget that the inalienable worth of a human being transcends his or her degree of development. In the same way, when technology disregards the great ethical principles, it ends up considering any practice whatsoever as licit. As we have seen in this chapter, a technology severed from ethics will not easily be able to limit its own power."
Can you guess who said it?

Just giving you some time to think about it.

I imagine your first thought is Pope Benedict XVI or Pope St. John Paul II.



And you'd be right. Partly right at least.

The quote actually comes from a recent papal encyclical published within our lifetimes.











Is it making sense yet?

Now you've got it!


Yup, that quote is from paragraph 136 of Pope Francis' Laudato Si'.

Seems prophetic now with the Planned Parenthood exposé videos coming out, no?
