Oh. No words. Only prayers. Prayers through tears.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

Gosh, Rev, this is just too sad to read.

I am reminded of that page I received from Pediatrics while a resident chaplain at St. Joe's Medical Center in Tacoma, WA. Couple's premature infant wasn't going to survive and I had to call the night emergency room chaplain to ask what I should do. For I was not up for the challenge.

He said to 1st find out from the nurse's station if they had named the child, and they had. I then lightly knocked, and asked if I might come in. As my chaplain friend suggested, asked the couple if I might hold and pray over this tiny one, holding one of my fingers over the child's heart. I did exactly as he suggested and after the very brief but concise prayer, tenderly handed the little one back to it's mother.

What an honor to have given this fragment of service, but how very sad. For in those few moments I saw that the precious one had already begun to turn blue, and likely had died in my hands. ;-/

I am not a parent, but I got just a small glimpse of a little of what it feels like.

Don't think I ever said, but they had gone through years of IVF and whatnot to conceive the first.

Rejoice! Gaudete!

Praying that even the sadnesses of parenthood will be joys for them.
