The Rest of the Quotation

President Bush's welcome of Pope Benedict XVI today was noted for its evocation of the pontiff's words that "all human life is sacred, 'each of us is loved and each us is necessary." It is a pro-life message, after all.

The lead in to the quoted words is found on little prayer cards available at Vatican City gift shops and is also worth noting: "We are not some meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary."

Enriches the significance, doesn't it?
