“Life and physical health are precious gifts entrusted to us by God. We must take reasonable care of them, taking into account the needs of others and the common good.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2288 - https://www.usccb.org/sites/default/files/flipbooks/catechism/553


“If morality requires respect for the life of the body, it does not make it an absolute value. It rejects a neo-pagan notion that tends to promote the cult of the body, to sacrifice everything for its sake, to idolize physical perfection and success at sports.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2289 - https://www.usccb.org/sites/default/files/flipbooks/catechism/554


“Faith makes us taste in advance the light of the beatific vision, the goal of our journey here below. Then we shall see God "face to face", "as he is". So faith is already the beginning of eternal life:

When we contemplate the blessings of faith even now, as if gazing at a reflection in a mirror, it is as if we already possessed the wonderful things which our faith assures us we shall one day enjoy. (St. Basil, De Spiritu Sancto)”

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 163 - https://www.usccb.org/sites/default/files/flipbooks/catechism/47


“although faith is above reason, nevertheless, between faith and reason no true dissension can ever exist, since the same God, who reveals mysteries and infuses faith, has bestowed on the human soul the light of reason; moreover, God cannot deny Himself, nor ever contradict truth with truth.” Vatican I, Dei Filius, 4 - https://www.ewtn.com/catholicism/teachings/vatican-i-dogmatic-constitution-dei-filius-on-the-catholic-faith-241


“The first is, to hold the truth of Scripture without wavering. The second is that since Holy Scripture can be explained in a multiplicity of senses, one should adhere to a particular explanation, only in such measure as to be ready to abandon it, if it be proved with certainty to be false; lest Holy Scripture be exposed to the ridicule of unbelievers, and obstacles be placed to their believing." St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, I 68: 1 - https://www.newadvent.org/summa/1068.htm#article1


“Methodical research in all branches of knowledge provided it is carried out in a truly scientific manner and does not override moral laws, can never conflict with the faith, because the things of the world and the things the of the faith derive from the same God. The humble and persevering investigator of the secrets of nature is being led, as it were, by the hand of God in spite of himself, for it is God, the conserver of all things, who made them what they are” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 159 - https://www.usccb.org/sites/default/files/flipbooks/catechism/45/


“the Church does not forbid that the teaching of "evolution" be treated in accord with the present status of human disciplines and of theology [...] Yet some with daring boldness transgress this freedom of discussion, acting as if the origin of the human body from previously existing and living matter, were already certain and demonstrated” Pope Pius XII, Humani Generis, 36 - https://www.vatican.va/content/pius-xii/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_p-xii_enc_12081950_humani-generis.html
