Special thanks to everyone who sent prayers and good wishes my way last week when I had knee surgery. All went well. God is good!
While recuperating over the weekend I was haunted by the photo of Omran Daqneesh—a 5-year old boy in Aleppo, Syria who was pulled out of a bombed building. He is one of thousands of children who suffer the unspeakable ravages of war. Later that day I read this quote from Pope Francis written to Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia who will be joining Bishop Kevin Farrell of Dallas in directing the Pro-Life activities of the global Catholic Church. It’s a call to all of us.
To kneel before the wounds of the human person, in order to understand them, care for them and heal them, is the duty of a Church that trusts in the light and the strength of the risen Christ. ~ Pope Francis
