在聖週五,教宗方濟在羅馬競技場主持苦路敬禮。今年的默想由三位來自黎巴嫩的青年人,在當地馬勞尼禮教會宗主教拉伊樞機的指導下撰寫。在苦路第十二處(耶穌基督在十字架上死去),讀經員讀出以下的祈禱:「今天我們為所有推廣墮胎的人祈禱,讓他們明白愛是生命之源。我們也為那些提倡安樂死,以及鼓吹使用危害人性命的醫療程序的人祈禱。」教宗方濟低頭祈禱。

願我們也為那些看不到人生命價值的人祈禱,求天主聖神早日開啟他們的心,不要再麻木的漠視任何人——不論他們的生命在什麼階段——的生存權利。

On Good Friday, Pope Francis led the Stations of the Cross at Colosseum. The reflections were written by three young people from Lebanon under the supervision of the Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Béchara Boutros Rai. At the twelfth station, the death of Christ on the cross, the lector read the following prayer: “Today we pray that all who promote abortion will realize that love can only be a source of life. Let us recall also the defenders of euthanasia, and those who encourage techniques and procedures that endanger human life”. Pope Francis bowed his head in prayer.

Let us continue to pray for those who fail to see the value of human lives, may the Holy Spirit open their hearts so that they no longer ignore the fundamental right to life for all human beings (including those who are at the beginning or the end of their lives).
