My son became a father for the first time last week. His son, Timothy Michael, is now 10 days old and my son now has pneumonia. As his mom, I am worried because he did not have too many respiratory issues as a child and now he and his wife seem to be continually battling this.
Please, if you have a moment, say a prayer for my son to recover quickly and for his son to remain healthy.
"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
