I warn you.. January 6, 2010 By Mary Ellen Barrett 11 Comments it's sad, but I have a post up on Catholic Exchange. I promise some happier, more mundane stuff coming soon.

You’re right, it WAS sad.
And beautiful…and truthful…and heart-wrenching…and hopeful.
Love you, dear.
I have been meditating on this idea this Christmas for other reasons, but feel called to share this with you. There is medical evidence that a baby’s stem cells pass into the mother in utero, attach to her medula- and stay there. So in essence, our children never leave us. God is so good. May He bless with peace.
You did warn us.
Any sadness that is there is overshadowed by deep and impacting hope. Thank you.
I wish I could put into words what is in my heart. I am continually amazed by you. you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers always.

Peace is not easy to find in such tumultuous details. It just plain sucks.
I just wanted to let you know that we pray to Ryan every night and ask for him to pray for many holy priestly vocations. Ever since we started doing this my little 2 year old started playing Mass and tells everyone he wants to be a priest. How beautiful to know that Ryan is up there helping bring many holy priests on Earth to give us all Jesus in Holy Communion. May God bless your family!
Here is our nightly prayer
” Little Ryan Barrett pray for us and pray for your family. Please pray for many holy priestly vocations in the church and especially from the Catholic homeschooling family.”
Heart wrenchingly beautiful, Mary Ellen. Thank you for sharing this, it brought much consolation to me.
Dear Mary Ellen,
The love you have for your son is so beautiful. How wonderful to share with us the beauty of his life and the prayers for priestly vocations.
We have a son who feels inclined to this voaction.
Perhaps you caould add him to your prayers.
Mary Ellen, God loves you and your husband and family so very much. You are so filled with His grace to write these words to share with all of us. I have been clinging to Our Lord’s Cross with Our Lady and You during this Christmas season. It has been so very hard, crushing at times. I want to hold my son as you want to hold yours. I pray every day that we keep our eyes focused on our final goal, where our little ones who have already gone before us will welcome us home. Love to you, and tears, my sweet friend. I love you and God loves you.
