In Honor of the Fallen

Also, in honor of those who died in the 9/11 attacks, I wanted to post a picture of this moving war memorial from the blog, Seven Angels, Four Kids, One Family.

Our Lady is shown with the Infant Jesus as Prince of Peace. An angel (perhaps a guardian angel) is lovingly holding the body of a soldier, as Mary and Jesus look on with welcoming expressions.

May all those who perished on 9/11 and the days following, and all our beloved dead, rest in peace.

Amen.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
