Angel in the Waters

posted by awelborn

We’ve talked about this book before of course, when it was first published, but you might want to know that Regina Doman’s wonderful book on life in the womb is now out in paperback. I can’t really say enough about this book except that every house with a child should have one. You can read it online and see for yourself – the tone is calm, mysterious, but still deeply assuring. It acknowledges change, fear and even pain, but puts it into the ressuring context of God’s love and plan for our ultimate happiness. Buy a few and have them on hand to give as gifts…who knows what good will be done as a result.

Wonderful book!
I bought several copies for gifts and asked the Cathedral Bookstore if they would order it.

Try Googling the illustrator’s name, Ben Hatke. He’s a good artist, and a commited Catholic.

Great book. We’re reading it to our 3-year-old to help explain about his baby brother or sister growing in mommy’s tummy (my wife is expecting our 3rd child).

My kids love this book.
You may be interested in Gilbert Magazine (http://www.aquinasandmore.com/index.cfm/FuseAction/store.ItemDetails/SKU/20154/) which he helps illustrate.

I had the privilege of meeting Regina Doman’s younger brother – he’s a medical student who did a rotation where I work. please pray for him that he will be able to get through medical training with his values intact.

There is nothing I shall want
A couple of weeks ago, a memorial Mass for Michael was held here in Birmingham at the Cathedral. The bishop presided and offered a very nice, even charming homily in which he first focused on the Scripture readings of the day, and then turned to Michael, whom he remembered, among other things, as on

Revolutionary Road - Is it just me?
Why am I the only person I know..or even "know" in the Internet sense of "knowing"  - who didn't hate it? I didn't love it, either. There was a lot wrong with it. Weak characterization. Miscasting. Anvil-wielding mentally ill prophets.But here's the thing.Whether or not Yates' original novel in

Brave Heart?
I don't know about you, but one of effects of childbirth on me was a compulsion to spill the details. All of them.The whole thing was fascinating to me, so of course I assumed everyone else should be fascinated as well in the recounting of every minute of labor, describing the intensity of discomfor
