Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

A Prayer for Terri

As many know, Terri Schaivo is periously close to losing her life, as the stay against her husband's intention to withdraw her feeding tube will run out in only a couple of days, and he could act to remove her tube as early as Tuesday. A sad sad day is near to us, and prayers are needed! To this end, I have placed this blog on the Terri Schaivo Blogburst (a blogburst is a voluntary grouping of like-minded blogs who come together in a common cause). I will try to post updates on Terri's fight, and offer possible options for prayer for her and her family, on a regular basis (something I should have done ages ago...).

To start, Pete Vere over at the Catholic Light blog, and Fr. Rob over at Thrown Back blog have collaborated on composing a prayer for Terri, asking for the intercession of Sr. Lucia of Fatima, who passed away on Sunday, February 13th. They invite you to start praying this prayer for Terri's deliverance:

Merciful Father, you blessed Sr. Lucia of Fatima as a child with a vision of the Virgin Mary, and granted her the grace to live a life of holiness and heroic obedience to Holy Mother Church. By her life she bore witness to the glory of God. Grant, in this hour of need for your daughter Terri Schiavo, that by Sr. Lucia's intercession, those souls hardened by the culture of death may come to believe in the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and be moved to revere and protect her life and all innocent human life. Amen.

And so through what may be divine inspiration, a thought occurred to me that may offer the solution to this particular challenge: offer the husband an attractive monetary settlement to release custody of Terri back to her parents.

Would the church be willing to take up a collection for this purpose?

Her family has already done so, but the offer was rejected. Keep praying...
