Hybrids not viable


From SPUX: Human-animal embryos do not seem to be viable, according to research by Advanced Cell Technology of Massachusetts reported on in the Cloning and
Stem Cells journal. The company's scientists tried crossing cows, mice and rabbits with people but, while the resulting beings underwent cell division, they eventually perished. Researchers say their work, involving hundreds of experiments, does suggest that human cloning could be feasible. [Reuters, 3 February]

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
