FEATURE: Archbishop Stankevics: Human Rights Come from Being Made in God’s Likeness; Natural Law, God’s Law, Brings True Happiness

Two years ago exactly, on Sept. 24, 2018, the Holy Father visited Latvia’s capital of Riga during his whirlwind trip to the Baltic Nations of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, which ZENIT English covered from the Papal Flight.

Recalling this anniversary, ZENIT would like to bring you back to Latvia, where the Archbishop of Riga, Zbignevs Stankevics, has reminded that human rights are born from our being made in God’s likeness, and how natural law, is engraved in every person’s soul.

In his speech about human rights to the Vanenburg Society Meeting of 2020 on Aug. 28, 2020, the Latvian prelate reminded: “We know that the inspiration for human rights comes from the fact that man was created in the image and likeness of God.”

Praise the Lord
