‘Infinite Dignity’: Vatican Releases Shocking Document 5 Years in the Making

In what has become a pleasant surprise to many, the Vatican has released a document over five years in the making titled “Dignitas Infinita,” which is Latin for “Infinite Dignity.” The document denounces the practice of transgender surgeries, gender theory and surrogacy, labelling them, according to Fox News, as “affronts to human dignity.”

“The Church sees the condemnation of these grave and current violations of human dignity as a necessary measure, for she sustains the deep conviction that we cannot separate faith from the defense of human dignity, evangelization from the promotion of a dignified life, and spirituality from a commitment to the dignity of every human being,” the authors wrote, explaining their reasoning and convictions behind addressing modern-day affronts to human dignity.

“In the light of Revelation, the Church resolutely reiterates and confirms the ontological dignity of the human person, created in the image and likeness of God and redeemed in Jesus Christ,” the document continues.

While many critics have argued that the Pope is personally a left-wing figurehead that has caused damage to the Catholic Church, many such as the incorrigible Catholic commentator of The Daily Wire, Michael Knowles, gave his approval through a post on X with the thumbs up, Latin cross and flag of Vatican City emoji’s.

There were several other topics addressed within the document, viewed as “Grave Violations of Human Dignity,” to include: murder; genocide; abortion; euthanasia; willful suicide; mutilation; subhuman living conditions; arbitrary imprisonment; deportation; slavery;
prostitution; the selling of women and children; and degrading working conditions where individuals are treated as
mere tools for profit rather than free and responsible persons, are all listed as “offenses to human dignity.”

Several responses from commentators online such as Daily Wire correspondent Bree A Dail, which was in turn reposted by pro-life advocate Allie Beth Stuckey, have helped shed light on the devastating impact that surrogacy can have on children who have no mother figure in their life.

“The Church also takes a stand against the practice of surrogacy, through which the immensely worthy child becomes a mere object,” states the document.

“First and foremost, the practice of surrogacy violates the dignity of the child. Indeed, every child possesses an intangible dignity that is clearly expressed—albeit in a unique and differentiated way—at every stage of his or her life: from the moment of conception, at birth, growing up as a boy or girl, and becoming an adult,” the writing continues. “Because of this unalienable dignity, the child has the right to have a fully human (and not artificially induced) origin and to receive the gift of a life that manifests both the dignity of the giver and that of the receiver.

“Moreover, acknowledging the dignity of the human person also entails recognizing every dimension of the dignity of the conjugal union and of human procreation. Considering this, the legitimate desire to have a child cannot be transformed into a ‘right to a child’ that fails to respect the dignity of that child as the recipient of the gift of life,” the statement continues.

As the document continues, it becomes increasingly difficult for many Catholics, such as Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, to justify their extreme pro-abortion stances while claiming to be people of faith that abide by the tenets of the Catholic Church: which condemns abortion and quotes Pope John Paul II saying, “Among all the crimes which can be committed against life, procured abortion has characteristics making it particularly serious and deplorable.”

People do not have to be practitioners of the Catholic faith to stand by the declarations of adhering to the designs of God and the dignity that Jesus Christ showed to the poor and downtrodden. When we abide by the commands granted to us in the Bible, we not only ensure dignity for those around us, but we also demonstrate biblical obedience and submission to the Lord, visible for all the world to see.
