After date rape she says all children are worth saving

Cradle My Heart Today | Mary Catherine’s story 12-19-17

Mary Catherine was an attorney and happily married, but infertility led her to separate from her husband. Listen now:

Not long after, she tells lifezette.com she suffered date rape.

She was in her late 30s, being treated for acute endometriosis. Suspecting a tumor, her doctor ordered an ultrasound. But her fear of cancer instantly vanished when the scan showed her pregnancy, already at three months.

She joyfully chose life, and never looked back, despite her son’s ongoing health concerns of deafness and other special needs.

She says, “As he grew, we became a mother-and-son law firm. We fought the battles together, two as one.”

Mary Catherine credits her faith in the miraculous power of God, thinking of nothing other than this, she says: All children are worth saving.

She modeled real strength of character grounded in that faith, as those around her questioned her decision to choose life and to give up her law practice to better advocate for, and eventually with, her son.

Throughout the Bible God expresses his concern for “the fatherless and the widow.” Those who lack the protection and provision of  men today include women who suffer sexual assault, as well as the children whose innocent lives are conceived in that circumstance.

We’re called on to become a community of care for women and children in need. The call in Psalm 146 comes in the context of praising God for his protection and provision. When others in our midst lack that support on a material level. God’s people stand in the gap.

Isn’t that the least that we can do?

The Lord . . . sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. Ps. 146:9
