Le blog de la Bergerie
In 2013, I did go to the end of the Walk, by the Embarcadero, but I was in a hurry, and I only got a couple of photos. The reason I was rushing was because I had a few weeks before been blessed with my first grandchild. And it was exhilirating to discover this little new baby. I made a feeble effort to go to the Walk but I did not stay long. Nevertheless, to me, there is the strongest possible link between the willingness to find joy and happiness in every baby being born and the witnessing of marching in the Walk. And working towards this end, again and again, by helping out the mother and the father, whether that baby is within our own family or within our cirle of friends, or in the larger circle of the neighborhood, the country or across the planet. There are a million ways to help and abortion is definitely not on that list. I am even more convinced of this than ever before. We are called to help the smallest ones among us, the most vulnerable ones.
Again, I saw some disturbing anti-christians signs:
But they could not erase the hope within our hearts, the encouragement from all the pro-life people here that day
and the happiness which I felt every minute of watching one baby sleeps peacefully
from the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
1817 Hope is the theological virtue by which we desire the kingdom of heaven and eternal life as our happiness, placing our trust in Christ's promises and relying not on our own strength, but on the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit. 1818 The virtue of hope responds to the aspiration to happiness which God has placed in the heart of every man; it takes up the hopes that inspire men's activities and purifies them so as to order them to the Kingdom of heaven; it keeps man from discouragement; it sustains him during times of abandonment; it opens up his heart in expectation of eternal beatitude. Buoyed up by hope, he is preserved from selfishness and led to the happiness that flows from charity.
