That means we must listen to medical experts, and do everything possible to avoid the catastrophe we see right now in Italy and elsewhere. We must get back to work, get the economy back on its feet, but we can only do that when doing so will not kill the vulnerable and overwhelm our hospitals, our doctors, our nurses, and our communities.
And along the way we must guard our consciences. We cannot pass by on the side of the road when the elderly, the disabled, the poor, and the vulnerable are in peril before our eyes. We want to hear the sound of cash registers again, but we cannot afford to hear them over the cries of those made in the image of God.
歷史上有很多大瘟疫大饑荒, 有一位作家說, 在這個時候人的價值變成價格, 變成一個統計數字, 年輕力壯的價格最高, 老弱殘障的賣不了什麼價格. 聖經裏說人是依神的形象造的, 是寶寶無比的, 養老院的老人, 躺在急診室的病人, 家裹的老阿公老阿婆, 那些殘障的人, 有絕症的人, 都是寶貴無比的, 他們的價值和年輕力壯有生產力的沒有差別.醫護人員搶救死亡, 不如說是搶救尊嚴, 上面的教宗所說的最後一段話說 - the cries of those made in the image of God, 讓我瞭解到做一個基督徒的意義.
