Hey everyone, this is Francis, a friend of Steve, and I will be posting occasionally on the site now, hopefully copiously if I overcome my laziness and start to look - look! - at the provocations copiously given by reality.
Here is a very clear judgment
on the issue of euthanasia. I have some thoughts about it, some things
I have been learning in my classes on ethics and political philosophy
that gained a new light from this flyer, and I will attempt to post
"So the case of Eluana puts us in front of the first
evidence that emerges in our life: we do not make ourselves. We are
made, we are wanted by Another. We are saved from our nothingness by
Someone who loves us and has told us: 'Even the hair on your head is
counted.' Rejecting this evidence means, sooner or later, rejecting
reality. Even when this reality has the face of the people we love."
originates exactly from a passion for man. God became man to meet the
need of all men, believers and non believers, to understand the meaning
of life and death. Christ had pity on our nothingness, and gave His own
life to affirm the infinite value of each of us, in whatever condition.
We need Him to be ourselves. We also need to be educated to recognize Him, to be able to live."
