DIOCESE OF PARRAMATTA REPORT:
The Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP, has just returned from Rome where he attended the Pontifical Academy for Life’s General Assembly.
Bishop Anthony had an individual meeting with Pope Benedict XVI where he presented the Holy Father with a copy of his new book, Catholic Bioethics for a New Millennium.
Bishop Anthony said that at the General Assembly, members discussed infertility and medically effective and ethical ways to deal with it.
“Founded by Pope John Paul II, the Academy is responsible for the development and promotion of many of the Catholic Church's positions on questions of medical ethics,” Bishop Anthony said
“Its website contains details about the Assembly and podcasts of some good interviews. It's worth a look.”
