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

"Terri of the Bronx" has died

Quietly, and without news attention, Teron Francis, a 13-year-old boy in the Bronx has died, as of 5:05pm (EST) 4/28/05.

His situation had been compared to Terri Schiavo's (though in his case he was on a ventilator), with his doctors fighting in the courts to remove his life support and his family wanting them to keep their son alive.

In this case, however, it seems that the judge had ordered the hospital to keep him on the ventilator, but then later, citing the agreement of the family, sent an order to have the ventilator removed.

Regretfully I have not kept up on this case as I would have liked to, so I am still not entirely sure of the circumstances, but no matter what - a young boy has died, perhaps before his time, and he and his family are in need of our prayers.
