How do you let go of a child?
You don't. You hand them over,
into the protective arms of our loving God.
-Bishop Gerald Barnes
As members of the body of Christ, the Church, we are called to bear witness to the loss of every life, no matter how brief or small. Let us pray that our growing sensitivity to the loss of a child through miscarriage will better assist grieving parents and help them to entrust their child to God's unfailing care and mercy.
Losing My Child at Easter
The next morning, good news: The doctor could see the baby, but it was too early for a heartbeat. I thanked our baby for being alive and promised we'd see Ant-Man and the Wasp, all three of us, even if a seven-month-old wouldn’t follow the plot. One more day, one more call from the doctor: My bloodwork still looked worrying. Could we come back for more tests after the holiday weekend?
Precious Baby Mass
Never a day goes by that we don’t think about and miss those precious babies who have touched our lives. They may be children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, or friends. They may be missing from our lives due to abortion, miscarriage, still birth, SID’s, and illness or accident; they are ALL PRECIOUS TO US.
