The Bishop of Oran protested the abortion in Tartagal at the beginning of the Triduum of the Miracle

The controversy over the abortion that took place weeks ago in the Tartagal hospital, where the doctor who performed it was denounced, detained and later released, while there are cross and controversial complaints so far, was a topic of mention during the homily of the central mass for the beginning of the Triduum of the Miracle.

The Eucharistic celebration on the feast of the Solemnity of Our Lady of the Miracle was presided over by the Bishop of Oran, Antonio Scozzina, who first of all thanked Monsignor Mario Cargnello for “presiding over this celebration, bringing the feeling and devotion of so many pilgrims from the north of Salta that they would like to be here today ”.

Already on the reflection of the Gospel of the beginning of the triduum, Scozzina reflected that “as a pilgrim church we are invited to listen together, listening is an attitude before the brother but also before God, it is a willingness that lives be guided by the attitude of the Spirit ”, he indicated.

To this he pointed out that there is a cry from God to “may justice and good be done, there is a clamor of so many claims of legitimate rights that they make to the relationship of human fullness ”. It was here when the bishop, as a pilgrim from the north, placed “situations of pain and so many signs of death, realities of despised and trampled lives ”.

To be clearer, addressing what happened with the abortion in the Tartagalo hospital, he exclaimed: “We live in our north a reality of great pain, because in the name of a right, of a law, the sensitivity of fragile humanity is lost and we become agents of the spirit of evil, We do not respect, we do not consider the dignity of the human person, of that dignity that each one has from before being born ”.


Death in our north, from so much unprotected and neglected childhood, it is a cry that cries out to the Lord “


After this demonstration, Scozzina continued with a request to the Lord of the Miracle to “to look at us with compassion, to make us more open and supportive, May it help us to overcome our selfishness and limited interests, so that the vocation to which we were called from baptism becomes present, to experience the graces of mercy ”, he concluded in his homily for the beginning of the Triduum of the Miracle 2021.
