Single Issue Obsession

Blessed John Paul II once submitted to an interview with the respected journalist Vittorio Messori, who asked him if he was perhaps “obsessive” in his preaching against abortion. The Holy Father replied: “The legalization of the termination of pregnancy is none other than the authorization given to an adult, with the approval of an established law, to take the lives of children yet unborn and thus incapable of defending themselves. It is difficult to imagine a more unjust situation, and it is very difficult to speak of obsession in a matter such as this, where we are dealing with a fundamental imperative of every good conscience — the defense of the right to life of an innocent and defenseless human being.” (Source)

Tip o’ the hat for all the pro-life Catholic stalwarts out there…

  1. I’m missing JP II so much these days. He combined some of the intellectualism and orthodoxy of Benedict with the charisma of Francis, but in his own unique, distinct way.

  2. Lots of people going to Hell because of a single issue.

    At the judgement seat of God, there’s one damn phrase no one will ever hear…”you’re just so single issue”.
