From Vatican News:
Addressing the Italian Association of Organ Donors in the Vatican on Saturday, Pope Francis extolled the merits of organ donation, saying it should be “encouraged as a manifestation of generous solidarity”.
Noting the developments in transplant medicine that have made it possible to donate after death, and in some cases even during life, the Pope said that, “organ donation responds to a social need because, despite the development of many medical treatments, the need for organs still remains great.” He went on to that, “donation means looking at and going beyond oneself, beyond one’s individual needs and opening oneself generously to a wider good.” In this perspective, the Pontiff added, ”organ donation is not only an act of social responsibility, but also an expression of the universal fraternity which binds all men and women together.”
