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

Praised by Jesus - Susan Torres gives birth!

A while ago I noted on here the story of Susan Torres and her family, a situation completely opposed to the dreadful case of Terri Schiavo. In this case, Susan, who was brain-dead without contest, but who also happened to be pregnant, was loved enough by her family to try to keep her alive long enough to give her child a chance at life. For three months she has been on life support, while her husband and her family prayed for her body to hang on long enough to grant life to the child. I can't help but think that Susan, if brain death is indeed death, was also praying mightily for her daughter!

Today, Susan Anne Catherine Torres was welcomed into the world by her father and her brother, 2-year-old Peter!

Can't get much different from Michael Schiavo now can we? Here we have a loving husband who quit his job just to stay by the side of his brain-dead pregnant wife, to do everything in his power to keep her and his daughter alive. God bless him and his family, and may God grant eternal rest to Susan, if He has now called her completely home to Himself.
