Pope’s quotes: ‘Divorce of economy and morality’

A quote from Pope Francis:

“One of the most serious risks of our age is the divorce of economy and morality, the separation between the opportunities offered by a market which as every technological novelty at its disposal and the basic ethical norms of human nature, which are increasingly neglected. Therefore it is necessary to reaffirm our solid opposition to any direct offence against life, especially when innocent and defenseless, and the unborn child in its mother’s womb is the quintessence of innocence. Let us remember the words of Vatican Council II: ‘Therefore from the moment of its conception life must be guarded with the greatest care while abortion and infanticide are unspeakable crimes.’”
