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

Tiniest Baby Goes Home From Hospital

Tiniest Baby Goes Home From Hospital

Why is it that doctors will fight to save the life of Rumaisa, a baby (born by C-section, furthermore!) at 25 weeks and 6 days of gestation and who weighed only 8.6 ounces, but then turn around and kill another unborn baby the same gestational age as Rumaisa was, but who just happened to be "unwanted?"

Why is one a human "worth" saving, and the other one not?

Of course, we are all very grateful that the doctors were able to save Rumaisa -- praised be Jesus Christ! Still... it makes you wonder.
