Via Amy Welborn

Amy's just posted and there are two items that caught my attention.
Firstly, she links to this excellent article by Edmund Oakes SJ on Newman and Conversion.

Secondly, she links to a San Diego organisation that provides "dignified burial for abandoned and unidentified children." It's non-denominational, but the Knights of Columbus play a big part in what they do. It's heart-breaking to think that this service is still needed. It reminds me of the fact that the early Christians would either care for or bury children abandoned by families according to the customs of ancient Rome. Ironically, this led to the charge of infanticide being made against Christians.
