Saint of the Day

St. Andrew Kim Taegon (19th century)
A Korean noble, Andrew's parents were converts and his father was a martyr. At fifteen, he was baptized and travelled 1300 miles to attend seminary. He became the first priest born in Korea, and the first priest to die for his faith there.

Reflections from the Saints

Life in Christ: Catechism #2417

God entrusted animals to the stewardship of those whom he created in his own image. Hence it is legitimate to use animals for food and clothing. They may be domesticated to help man in his work and leisure. Medical and scientific experimentation on animals is a morally acceptable practice if it remains within reasonable limits and contributes to caring for or saving human lives.
