Pope Francis Again Appeals for Alfie Evans and Vincent Lambert


(La Croix International) – Pope Francis has reiterated his appeal for those responsible to do all that is possible to safeguard the lives of a British child and of a French man who are both on life support.

“Let us gather in silence and pray so that the lives of all persons, especially of these two brothers of ours, are respected” the pope said during the General Audience April 18. “It is our duty to do all that is possible to safeguard life.”

“Let us pray that every sick person may always be respected in their dignity and cared for in an appropriate way for their condition, with the unanimous contribution of family members, doctors and other health-care workers, and with great respect for life,” he said. CONTINUE
