Reflection March 21, 2015:
I have a friend that was treated unkindly at her parish because she and her husband have no children. This is not Christian love! This is not the choice of this couple not to have children…
How can we as a Catholic Community serve those who are a “Family of 2”, just as Sevant of God Elisabeth Leseur and Felix were in life? Marriage is the gift that makes a FAMILY, not everyone will be able to bring forth children and some will not have the ability to adopt. So, does this make them less than? Not at all.
This life is too short to behave this way, I pray that we will all learn to have open arms to those who are called to a different service within the Church. Those without children are a family and are still called to be HOLY, FAITHFUL SERVANTS of GOD.
Just my .02
Holy Servants Elisabeth and Felix Leseur, pray for us.
See note below from Joe MacNeil:
The contact information for the postulator’s office in Rome is no longer accurate. Brother Llewellyn Muscat, secretary to the Dominican Postulator, is now the primary contact person at the Vatican. For contact details, and an overview of the current status of the cause, I suggest the website ELcause.org. It is maintained by Elisabeth Leseur’s Circle of Friends, a new non-profit group based in the United States who are trying to energize work to advance her cause.
