Still, in the face of other people’s analogous interests, some kind of compromise must be found, if one wants a society in which the maximum possible freedom is guaranteed to each individual. Revelation progressively allows the first notion of immortal life planted by the Creator in the human heart to be grasped with ever greater clarity: At this point our meditation becomes praise and thanksgiving, and at the same time urges us to imitate Christ and follow in his footsteps cf.

As time passed, the Church’s Tradition has always consistently taught the absolute and unchanging value of the commandment “You shall not kill”. The Church, faithfully contemplating the mystery of the Redemption, acknowledges this value with ever new wonder.

In this way democracy, contradicting its own principles, effectively moves towards a form of totalitarianism. Birth and death, instead of ;ablo primary experiences demanding to be “lived”, become things to be merely “possessed” or “rejected”. In a social and cultural context which makes it more difficult to face and accept suffering, the temptation becomes all the greater to resolve the problem of suffering evajgelium eliminating it at the root, by hastening death so that it occurs at the moment considered most suitable.

Through it, Israel comes to learn that whenever its existence is threatened it need only turn to God with renewed trust in order to find in him effective help: In moments of sickness too, evangeliuj is called to have the same trust in the Lord and to renew his fundamental faith in the Juna who “heals all your diseases” cf.


It is clear that on the basis of these presuppositions there is no place in the world for anyone who, like the unborn or the dying, is a weak element in the social structure, or for anyone who appears completely at the mercy of others and radically dependent on them, and can only communicate through the silent language of a profound sharing of affection.
