Tonight in my Bible class, a student shared a touching story. A family member was pregnant and found that the baby would not live long after birth due to extreme medical problems. She continued the pregnancy until the baby was born. The family had a priest waiting in the wings. When the little one came into the world, he was given a name, held by the family, Baptized and given Last Rights at the same time. He lived only 10 minutes. Now he is in Heaven where he is able to pray for his family. I thought of the baby that my mother had who lived for a few hours. He also was named and Baptized and given back to Our Lord. Sometimes it makes me sad, but other times, I feel blessed to have a brother praying for us all and look forward to meeting him.
I Found God today remembering that all life begins with God and He brings them all back to Himself.
