“Choose the Child”

“If you must decide between me and the child, do not hesitate: Choose the child – I insist on it. Save the baby.”

Today is a very important feast day in the Church, the feast of St. Gianna Beretta Molla, patron saint of mothers, the unborn, and complications in pregnancy.

As a result of health complications, she chose dying in place of her newborn during labor instead of aborting her baby like the doctors urged her to. She was a doctor, a wife, a mother and the perfect example of who many women aspire to be, by the grace of God. St. Gianna, pray for us!
