Pope Francis Sends Good Wishes for Day for Life in England and Wales – Sends Support and Apostolic Blessing to Participants

Rome, July 23, 2015

According to Zenith Pope Francis has sent his good wishes and support to the Catholic Church in England and Wales for this Sunday’s Day for Life. Day for Life is the day dedicated to praying for the protection of human life and raising awareness about its meaning and value at every stage and in every condition.

Britain’s Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Antonio Mennini, received the letter from the Pope and conveyed it to the Bishop for Day for Life, Bishop John Sherrington.

The Holy Father cordially imparts his Apostolic Blessing “upon all those persons who are participating in this significant event and working in any way for the promotion of the dignity of every human person from the moment of conception until natural death,” the message says.

Day for Life 2015 focuses on Catholic teaching about appropriate treatment at the end of life. The essential message for the Day is ‘How do we cherish life while we can and accept death when it comes?’

Over 300,000 postcards will be distributed to parishioners in England and Wales this weekend offering guidance about end of life decisions.
