Rest in the Savior's arms, Terri

Cardinal Martino is right

May the Lord bless and keep her. May his perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Forgive us, Terri. We don't know what we're doing. Father, Forgive us, we know not what we do:

Americans--The public, by 63 percent-28 percent,
supports the removal of Schiavo's feeding tube

We really don't know what we're doing:

By a significant margin the public views the removal of Terri
Schiavo's (search) feeding tube as an act of mercy rather than
an act of murder, according to the latest FOX News poll.

The new poll — taken prior to Schiavo's death — finds that a 54
percent majority sees the removal of Schiavo's feeding tube as
"an act of mercy" and almost a third see it as "an act of murder"
(29 percent), 7 percent say "neither" and 11 percent are

Murder as an act of mercy--practically a textbook definition of euthanasia. Another fruit of "choice". Another Reasonable conclusion that furthers the worship of Thanatos and I-am-the-lord-my-god. Heavan knows we need more fools and we need them fast.

The Field awaits. Too many languish in the dark, and we must bring the light we bear to them. I need to take light-bearing more seriously. A few words scattered upon a blog does not evangelization make, at least on its own. I shudder to think at the opportunities to help Terri that I passed on by. Forgive us, Lord, for what we have done and what we have failed to do.

For Terri, the struggle ends in Eternal bliss at last. For her family, and our nation, the long road through this vale of tears continues. Ultreya!
