Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

New breakthrough for adult stem cell research

They have now discovered adult stem cells that "may have the capacity to repair and regenerate all tissue types in the body"--a capacity formerly thought to be only applicable to embryonic stem cells (which are immoral to use for research according to Catholic teaching, since their use requires the killing of a living, growing baby).

The specific type of stem cell that they seem to be using for this case, comes from living "adult" bone marrow -- a perfectly acceptable source for stem cell research.

Let us pray that this new discovery brings more people to an understanding of the value of adult stem cell research.
