This morning I offered a funeral Mass for a baby. He had two days in this life.
The grief and shock, the tragic wrongness of the whole thing, the pitiful little coffin, it was all so sad.
At the cemetery, while I was waiting for the funeral director to take me back to the friary, I started to think about God's Heart. Take the sadness of this funeral today and multiply it times just the children killed by abortion in one day, and that's a look into the Heart of God.
May he rest in peace.
