Christ in the Womb for July 27, 2014 and The Word Made Flesh for July 25-26, 2015
July 27 Bulletin
The Word was made Flesh . . . Following
Baby Jesus in the womb
Baby weighs 7 ounces. It is incredible to think Baby will increase its weight more than 15 times between now and delivery. Since week 6, the main divisions of the central nervous system have been established while increased development of the brain and spinal cord continues.
Baby’s approximate due date: December 25, 2014
The Word Made Flesh for July 25-26, 2015
The brain and central nervous system, modern science thinks, may be the seat of the soul. Our girl we are following is only 1/15th the size of child ready to be born- but she already has a soul. Psalm 139 tells us that God has knit together the soul and the body- into one indivisible whole. These competing theories of ensoulment- and many others- lead some to doubt the sinfulness of abortion. But as Catholics, we know that the body and soul are indivisible- and thus human life must be protected from conception.
Our little girl shares her due date with the birthday of our Lord, December 25, 2015.
