The Pontifical Academy for Life releases a document on the lessons the human family can learn from the Covid-19 pandemic, and urges everyone to develop an ethics of risk and solidarity to protect the most vulnerable of society.

"Humana communitas in the age of pandemic: Untimely meditations on life's rebirth" is the title of the document released on Wednesday by the Pontifical Academy for Life.
The document opens with a statement of fact: "Covid-19 has brought desolation to the world." Despite the situation we find ourselves in, we are "summoned to the courage of resistance."
The human community is therefore invited to take a step back and give thanks for the gift of life we have been given, in order to turn our predicament into "a passageway to life’s rebirth".
