Tests

 

“The tests which modern society subjects Christians to, in fact, are many, and affect the personal and social life.  It is not easy to be faithful to Christian marriage, practice mercy in everyday life, leave space for prayer and inner silence, it is not easy to publicly oppose choices that many take for granted, such as abortion in the event of an unwanted pregnancy, euthanasia in case of serious illness, or the selection of embryos to prevent hereditary diseases.  The temptation to set aside one’s faith is always present and conversion becomes a response to God which must be confirmed several times throughout one’s life.”

~ Pope Benedict XVI, Wednesday Audience, 13 February 2013
