What I have learned in the last 3 years is what to really expect when having a child with Down Syndrome. Someone once gave me a book about what to expect, I read a few chapters and threw it away. I hated it. Most books and pamphlets are so outdated the material is beyond depressing…. Some people still don’t see the beauty in a child like ours….
Following debate on the floor of the Oklahoma House today, legislators voted 75-15 to pass SB 1848, which earlier passed the State Senate by 34-8.

FIRST READING: Acts 2:42-47 They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to th […]
Kentucky Senate candidate Matt Bevin, in a new mailer sent to homes across Kentucky, questions the pro-life convictions of Sen. Mitch McConnell, one of the pro-life movement’s greatest allies in Congress, whom he is running against in the Republican primary.

Washington D.C., Apr 24, 2014 / 04:14 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- John Paul II’s upcoming canonization gives new impetus to his “ground-breaking” theology of the body, which has the potential to “completely transform” contemporary culture, one theology professor says. “Catholics who have been presented with the teaching in its fullness have experienced profound con […]
I can still remember sitting on my mother’s lap as a child. It’s one of those fuzzy, blurry memories, and I can’t remember the specific reasons for needing her comfort. I don’t know what color the chair was that we sat on, but I remember the way it rocked. I don’t know what she and I were wearing, but I remember the comforting feel of her clothes. I don’ […]
Abortion is a gruesome act in and of itself but Kermit Gosnell’s abortion techniques and shoddy abortion clinic conditions took disgusting to a new level. One way in which this late-term abortionist horrified anyone who learned of his actions was his proclivity for keeping “souvenirs” of his abortions.

Psalm 93 [Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition]
1 The Lord is the God to whom revenge belongeth: the God of revenge hath acted freely.
2 Lift up thyself, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 How long shall sinners, O Lord: how long shall sinners glory?
4 Shall they utter, and speak iniquity: shall all speak who work injustice?
5 Thy people, O Lord, they have brought low: and they have afflicted thy inheritance.
6 They have slain the widow and the stranger: and they have murdered the fatherless.
7 And they have said: The Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob understand.
8 Understand, ye senseless among the people: and, you fools, be wise at last.
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? or he that formed the eye, doth he not consider?
10 He that chastiseth nations, shall he not rebuke: he that teacheth man knowledge?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou shalt instruct, O Lord: and shalt teach him out of thy law.
13 That thou mayst give him rest from the evil days: till a pit be dug for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people: neither will he forsake his own inheritance.
15 Until justice be turned into judgment: and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.
16 Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the Lord had been my helper, my soul had almost dwelt in hell.
18 If I said: My foot is moved: thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
19 According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, thy comforts have given joy to my soul.
20 Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, who framest labour in commandment?
21 They will hunt after the soul of the just, and will condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my refuge: and my God the help of my hope.
23 And he will render them their iniquity: and in their malice he will destroy them: the Lord our God will destroy them.
