Pío XII , de nombre secular Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli , fue elegido papa número 260, cabeza visible de la Iglesia católica, y soberano de la Ciudad del Vaticano desde el 2 de marzo de 1939 hasta su muerte en 1958. El papa Benedicto XVI lo declaró venerable el 19 de diciembre de 2009.

Antes de su elección al papado, Pacelli se desenvolvió como secretario de la Congregación de Asuntos Eclesiásticos Extraordinarios, nuncio papal y cardenal secretario de Estado, desde donde pudo alcanzar la conclusión de varios concordatos internacionales con estados europeos y americanos, entre los que destacó el Concordato imperial , con la Alemania Nazi, firmado en 1933 y aún en parte vigente. Por otra parte, Pacelli tuvo un influjo decisivo en la redacción de la carta encíclica de Pío XI titulada Mit brennender Sorge a los obispos alemanes, del 14 de marzo de 1937, que significó una advertencia severa al régimen del Tercer Reich.

Su liderazgo al frente de la Iglesia católica durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial sigue siendo motivo de análisis y controversia, principalmente en lo que respecta a la intensidad de su reacción frente a los crímenes del régimen nazi en Europa.

„The life of an innocent person is sacrosanct, and any direct attempt or aggression against it is a violation of one of the fundamental laws without which secure human society is impossible.“

—  Pope Pius XII
Context: Besides, every human being, even the child in the womb, has the right to life directly from God and not from his parents, not from any society or human authority. Therefore, there is no man, no human authority, no science, no "indication" at all—whether it be medical, eugenic, social, economic, or moral—that may offer or give a valid judicial title for a direct deliberate disposal of an innocent human life, that is, a disposal which aims at its destruction, whether as an end in itself or as a means to achieve the end, perhaps in no way at all illicit. Thus, for example, to save the life of the mother is a very noble act; but the direct killing of the child as a means to such an end is illicit. The direct destruction of so-called "useless lives," already born or still in the womb, practiced extensively a few years ago, can in no wise be justified. Therefore, when this practice was initiated, the Church expressly declared that it was against the natural law and the divine positive law, and consequently that it was unlawful to kill, even by order of the public authorities, those who were innocent, even if on account of some physical or mental defect, they were useless to the State and a burden upon it. The life of an innocent person is sacrosanct, and any direct attempt or aggression against it is a violation of one of the fundamental laws without which secure human society is impossible. We have no need to teach you in detail the meaning and the gravity, in your profession, of this fundamental law. But never forget this: there rises above every human law and above every "indication" the faultless law of God.

„God did not create a human family made up of segregated, dissociated, mutually independent members. No; he would have them all united by the bond of total love of Him and consequent self-dedication to assisting each other to maintain that bond intact.“
