New Life...

Saint Augustine tells us that all new life is a miracle. Even though it may be such a common thing for us to see flowers and plants spring up from seeds, and calves born of cows, still, God demonstrates as great a miracle in giving these creatures life, as He did in the feeding of the 5000. 

Yesterday, two calves were born and the miracle of life continued. They are both doing well, and it is wonderful to remark that within hours of being born they are able to stand up and seek milk from their mother. These first few days are the most critical as their life is so fragile.

This young male calf is barely one day old. He is healthy and well.
It is very difficult not to be moved by a newly born animal!
This mother cow is the biggest of all the animals we have.
Here we have the second calf not yet a day old.
He is still a little frail but is doing very well all the same.
Mobile calving pens with locking yokes allow safe access to the calf or mother.
There is a gate which swings around totally surrounding the cow allowing this access.
This the Simmental Bull, Sire to all the calves. 
A feeding passage down the middle of the barn which houses cows on the one side . . .
. . . and last year’s calves on the other side.

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
