Yesterday the joy of the children, especially Kellie Marie, displayed visible joy when seeing their mother work a complex problem outside for the first time in a year. I could not miss the chance to capture this miracle moment though. A moment where the culture of life shone through the Joy in the Yard.
Today my wife will join other mothers in a Rosary for the success of the synod in Rome. We need the church Fathers to support needs of natural law families in an world increasingly hostile to Christians. We need to have provide a clarity and compassion to each of us sinners. Many false prophets call us to us today. The desire to lead us astray of the true Wisdom dispersed on our very natures before recorded time began.
We need to ensure people understand there is no dishonor in coming to the confessional, doing penance and returning to full communion in the Universal Church. Mercy cannot flow without acceptance of our own faults, and recognition of God's Wisdom being the path to heaven. This means pastoral care is intensely personal, and needs to be so since the Holy Spirit will interact with each of us differently to achieve God's plan for the world.
St John Paul the Great pray for us and your brother princes of the church today!
