Please lift this family up in prayer!

Megan at Heart of St. Monica alerted me to this sweet family's website several days ago, and I have been following the birth of their sweet little son, Jedidiah Joseph who was diagnosed in utero with Trisomy 13. 

He lived for 13 days, but passed away last night.  Please send a prayer to Our Most Holy Father for this family during the difficult days ahead. 

What a testament to the value of life and dignity of the human person this family has been!  Thank you for covering them in prayer!

Dear Angela,

I just came across your blog two days ago. I wanted to start from the beginning, so I started from your first blog and worked my way to your most recent. It must have been a God-incidence because after two days of reading, I was caught off guard and moved deeply to be reading about my sweet sister's baby Jedidiah Joseph. After his burial - one I will NEVER forget - one of the sweetest, most heartbreaking, most personal funerals I have ever been privileged to be a part of - I guess I just wanted to see how people who have gone through sorrow and pain, particularly people of faith, how they are doing now. When I read your blog today, I thought how much my sister would gain from reading it. My sister Elizabeth is an incredible woman and mother. She is the tenth of eleven children, and yet, as her older sister (#3), I have so much to learn from her. I have been praying for you especially at this moment in your life. My favorite prayer is the Divine Mercy Chaplet. That prayer has gotten me through some tough times in my life. Whenever I begin to feel anxious, I try to remember to say, "Jesus, I trust in you." And surrender to Him. God bless you and Robert and Isabel (my newest niece is named Isabelle - four months old) and of course, blessed be the fruit of your womb. Denise Jordan
