Reposted this date due to numerous requests: Suppose you are alive, but paralysed. Your mind seems to be in working order, but you can't say much.

You enjoy the sunshine in the morning, when your nurses open the curtains, and you like the sound of rain falling upon the window, and at night, you can see the moon travel across the sky, as you watch and wonder. … [Read more...]

Theresa Marie Schindler Schiavo – RIP

They are in there now, praying at her bedside."It is completely and utterly heartbreaking to read this.Be at peace, in glory and wholeness. And flights of angels lead you to your rest.It … [Read more...]

This is heartbreaking.While you're at it, if you can bear it, after listening to Terri and understanding once again that she is being made to die, for NO GOOD REASON, listen to Bill O' Reilly's rant against the ACLU.

Florida Bishops offer weak, mealy-mouthed talk on Schiavo

Egad, what a disappointment!It's not unusual for the layfolk to have to speak up and say, EXCUSE ME? Is this the best you shepherds can do?The Florida Catholic Bishops’ conference has stated plainly that Terri’s means of receiving food and water does not constitute ‘extraordinary’ means of preserving her life, and is a simple requirement of ordinary care.

The Church of Good Health: Body, Mind, Spirit? Body…Body…Body?

It's curious to find my first post today to be about health, since I have succumbed to some raggedy-assed virus of a sort. I haven't exactly crashed and burned as in the past, but it's been a logey and cruddy sort of day. But enough about me.Ann Althouse has an interesting post on a recent statement by the Vatican. Althouse herself, crediting the Vat with having a made a good point, says: Perhaps as an ethical matter, anyone contemplating something like cosmetic surgery, ought to think again and … [Read more...]
