ADAM'S ALE: TUESDAY QUOTE OF THE WEEK: CCXLII - 4 views

  • Twas the night before Christmas And packed was the Mass. Not a creature was stirring? Not even a chance. The cars were all parked In imaginative places For in the small lots There were no more spaces And many a wife To her husband thus talked “We parked so far away We could have just walked” All the people were stuffed 10 or 12 to a pew Perched 2 to a chair Such a crowd the Mass drew. Each grown up was fussing With some consternation Trying to follow The new Mass translation.
  •  
    Father V. had a wonderful homily for the children's mass this year.  Here is a part of it but head on over to Adam's Ale to read the rest.  When (and if) it gets posted over on the church web site, I'll link it here.

When a baby is destined to die - Kids and parenting- msnbc.com - 0 views

  • Many have family and friends who are mystified as to why a couple would continue a pregnancy knowing their child will die. Loved ones often fear that by continuing on, the parents are simply delaying their grief or torturing themselves. What will they say to strangers who casually ask if the nursery is ready? And what if bringing the baby into this world causes the child suffering? But for some, the pregnancy feels precious because it may be the only time they’ll get to be with that child, says Schoonveld. “I think most people who have continued want to experience as much time with the baby as possible and want to hopefully meet the baby.

  • When the child dies, staff can help parents make their memories tangible by cutting a lock of their baby's hair or making hand impressions that parents can run their own fingers over during all the years to come.

  • Nearly a half hour after his birth, when Robbie’s breathing was still imperceptible, Steve bent to show his son to Jeanne’s 92-year-old great aunt Veva Conley and she impulsively reached out to warm Robbie’s foot, turned purple from lack of oxygen. In that instant, everything changed. Courtesy of Deibert familyRobbie Deibert, the day he was born.Robbie, presumably startled, took a deep breath. And another. And another. Soon his breathing was normal and his color started to improve. The next day, Stepping Stones helped them arrange to take him home to their light-filled house to live with his 2-year-old big brother, Stevie, for as long as his body would last.
