Pope Pius XII


EDITOR'S NOTE: The address of Pope Pius XII, given November 12, 1944, to the Italian Guild of St. Luke, was perhaps the most comprehensive of all of his talks on medical morality. Moreover, it seems to have been the first of his many discourses to the medical profession; and it contained in germ many of the subsequent and very important addresses. We believe that all Catholic doctors should be familiar with its content; hence, we are presenting here a very complete digest of the Pope's words. This has been made possible through the generous cooperation of Daniel T. Costello, S.J.; Mario Jaccarini, S.J.; and Richard J. McPartlin, S.J.
