Organ Donation: A Catholic Perspective


“Transplants are a great step forward in science’s service of man, and not a few people today owe the technique of transplants has proven to be a valid means of attaining the primary goal of all medicine – the service of human life…There is a need to instill in people’s hearts, especially in the hearts of the young, a genuine and deep appreciation of the need for brotherly love, a love that can find expression in the decision to become an organ donor.”

– Pope John Paul II to attendees at the
International Congress on Transplants in Rome – August 2000
