Truly and Fully Known

Scientific advances today allow us to know beforehand what colour a child’s hair will be or what illnesses that may one day suffer, because all the somatic traits of the person are written in his or her genetic code already in the embryonic stage. Yet only the Father, the Creator, fully knows the child; he alone knows his or her deepest identity and worth.

Pope Francis, Amoris Laetitia, 170.
