The Pope Says "Drive Safe"
As the full text is not yet available in English, here's my rough translation of the graf appealing for road safety:
"The end of June marks, for the countries of the northern hemisphere, the beginning of the summer season and for this reason starts vacation season. While I wish a happy vacation to all who are able to spend peacefully some time of well-deserved rest and relaxation, I'd like to make an appeal to prudence to all those who take to the roads to reach their holiday destinations. Each day, sadly, but especially on the weekends, accidents occur where human lives are tragically cut short, and more than half of the victims are of a young age. In recent years, efforts have been made to prevent these tragic events, but more can be done with the contributions and the help of all. We must combat distractions and superficiality, which in a moment can ruin one's own future and that of others. Life is precious and unique: we must respect and protect it always, and we do this also by our correct and prudent behavior on the road."
Now that's a pro-life speech. I put it right up there with John XXIII's Window Exhortation to "Go home, kiss your children and tell them the Pope loves them."
