Show compassion for parents of baby, too

Success - Article sent! close

Today, the charity organization Rest in His Arms will hold a funeral at St. Anne Catholic Church in Barrington for a 7-month-old baby who died from starvation. Whether you can attend or not, say a prayer -- for the soul of the baby, and for the parents. We rush to judgment when such a tragedy occurs. Try to show compassion for two very young parents, overwhelmed with twins, possibly without knowledge or proper resources. It's not the popular view, but it's the decent one.
