In Islamic teachings, breastfeeding another baby X number of times makes you a mother to them. This woman has parented so many other kids. Bless her esp while grieving. https://twitter.com/SikhProf/status/1196785653935214602 …
Sacrifice for others when suffering yourself... It would seem there's little holier than that.
A priest told this 13-year-old that there would be no more altar girls in his parish. She, her family and the Reardan parishioners pushed back, and he changed course. https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/oct/20/shawn-vestal-family-pushes-parish-to-change-course/ …
Young people serving in religious settings has a long and varied history across the globe. In the Coptic Orthodox Church, headquartered in Egypt, a child plucks the name of their new pope out of a vessel placed under an altar.

The more we understand each other, the stronger our community becomes.
No birth, no ceremony, no body to wash, anoint, and clothe, no grave to dig. We want to have our hands on something. We want to know for sure that the world acknowledges: Yes, the child was here.

Without commenting on the politics, we'd like to share a couple of points in answer to the question "What is a Kurd?" Kurds are an ethnic group with homelands in NW Iran, SE Turkey, N Iraq, & N Syria. Though most are Muslim, Kurds have a historic commitment to religious freedom.
Photos from the afternoon sessions of our Fall Assembly on Theology of the Body, Salvation History and Parish Stewardship.
Theology of the Body is a collection of teachings in the Catholic Church about human nature and the universe gleaned from the human form and condition. For Christians: Which lesson inspires you most? For Other Faiths: What corollary exists in your belief system?
I mentioned this report from Catholic Charities in a recent column. It's an excellent, factual, humane look at homelessness from the organization that has likely done more than any other to take on the most difficult parts of the problem.

At a conference for religion reporters (nerdy, I know). First person I see (not a conference attendee) says: “Namaste! Don’t worry man. I’m one of the good guys who knows you’re Hindu and not Muslim.” Where do I even begin...?
In case the reader didn't know, Sikhism is completely distinct from Hinduism and Islam. It's a monotheistic faith rooted in the teachings of ten gurus. And its holy book is called the Guru Granth Sahib.
