After the curse imposed on him by God, Cain thus addresses the Lord: As I have already emphasized, this commandment is found in the Deca- logue, at the heart of the Covenant which the Lord makes with his chosen people; but it was already contained in the original covenant between God and humanity after the purifying punishment of the Flood, caused by the spread of sin and violence cf. And it is also in view of this entrusting that God gives everyone freedom, a freedom which possesses an inherently relational dimension.

Short Reflections for Personal Thought and Prayer: When the Church proclaims Christ as the one who “went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him” Acts You shall not kill, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal The encyclical also deals with the proper uses of sex and the implementation of knowledge on adolescent teens of these behaviors. Moreover, once all reference to God has been removed, it is not surprising that the meaning of everything else becomes profoundly distorted.

It is a known fact that in the first centuries, murder was put among the three most serious sins-along with apostasy and adultery-and required a particularly heavy and lengthy public penance before the repentant murderer could be granted forgiveness and readmission to the ecclesial community.

As time passed, the Church’s Tradition has always consistently taught the absolute and unchanging value of the commandment “You shall not kill”.

From this text the Church has taken the name of the “sins which cry to God for justice”, and, first among them, she has included wilful murder. God thus shows that he does not delight in the death of the living cf. What have you done? The mother was not filled before the son, but after the son was filled with the Holy Spirit, he filled his mother too”.


O death, where is your sting? Precisely for this reason God will severely judge every violation of the commandment “You shall not kill”, the commandment which is at the basis of all life together in society.

In this enccloca, we revert to a state of barbarism which one hoped had been left behind forever. To give this life is the real object of Jesus’ mission: This question is found everywhere in the Bible, and from the very first pages it receives a powerful evvangelium amazing answer. All this is causing a profound change in the way in which life and relationships between people are considered. This will only be possible thanks to the gift of God who purifies and renews: Viyae else is considered an enemy from whom one has to defend oneself.

How did evanvelium a situation come about? At the same time a new cultural climate is developing and taking hold, which gives crimes against life a new and-if possible-even more sinister character, giving rise to further grave concern: A stranger is no longer a stranger for the person who mustbecome a neighbour to someone in need, to the point of accepting responsibility for his life, as the evangeelium of the Good Samaritan shows so clearly cf.

A bible study, how to proclaim life, serve life and celebrate life by Theresa M Casale. The protection of life is not only ensured by the spe- cific commandment “You shall not kill” Ex In a similar way national and international associations of physicians are being organized to bring quick relief to peoples affected by natural disasters, epidemics or wars. The life which was always “in him” and which is the “light of men” Jn 1: For this reason, man-living man-represents the primary and fundamental way for the Church.

After his death “the tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised” Mt In the face of over- population in the poorer evangepium, instead of forms of global intervention at the gitae level-serious family and social policies, programmes of cultural development and of fair production and distribution of resources-anti-birth policies continue to be enacted.

Jesus himself, addressing the Father in the great priestly prayer, declares what eternal life consists in: Jesus does not deny the Law but brings it to fulfilment cf. It is not difficult to be tempted to use the same methods and attacks against life also where there is a situation of “demographic explosion”. Something similar happens when concern about the consequences of such a “freedom without law” leads some people to the opposite position of a “law without freedom”, as for example in ideologies which consider it unlawful to interfere in any way with nature, practically “divinizing” it.


Nor can it be denied that the mass media are often necclica in this conspiracy, by lending credit to that culture which presents votae to contraception, sterilization, abortion evanfelium even euthanasia as a mark of progress and a victory of freedom, while depicting as enemies of freedom and progress those positions which are unreservedly pro-life. These are the “words of eternal life” which Peter acknowledges in his confession of faith: In man the Creator finds his rest, as Saint Ambrose comments with a sense of awe: Procreation then becomes the “enemy” to be avoided in sexual activity: May these words reach all the sons and daughters of the Church!

Implicitly, however, it encourages a positive attitude of absolute respect for life; it leads to the promotion of life and to progress along the way of a love which gives, receives and serves. The infant leaped, the mother was filled with the Spirit.

Want to Read saving…. At such times the People of God, and this includes every believer, is called to profess with humility and courage its faith in Jesus Christ, “the Word of life” 1 Jn 1: Old age is characterized by dignity and surrounded with reverence cf. Thus, in relation to life at birth or at death, man is no longer capable of posing the question of the truest meaning of his own existence, nor can he assimilate with genuine freedom these crucial moments of his own history.

Jesus is nailed to the Cross and is lifted up from the earth.

Prenatal diagnosis, which presents no moral objections if carried out in order to identify the medical treatment which may be needed by the child in the womb, evangelihm too often becomes an opportunity for proposing and procuring an abortion. We cannot but think of today’s tendency for people to refuse to accept responsibility for their brothers and sisters.
