On February 21-23, 2013, the Pontifical Academy gathered in the Vatican for the XIX General Assembly. Several reflexions were offered, focusing on how the Christian message regarding human life needs to be put in practice in our times - in various different medical, social and curative circumstances.
On the second day of the Assembly, the workshop Faith and Human Life took place. This initiative stemmed from the Year of Faith launched by Holy Father Benedict XVI on October 11, 2012. Its goal was to highlight the doctrinal teachings of Catholic Church based on the Christian concept of human life.
