Welcome Child #7 Billion - Une visite avec des jeunes dominicains

Isn't she pretty?

The world's seven billionth baby has been born in a packed government-run hospital in the Philippines.

Weighing 2.5kg (5.5lb), Danica May Camacho was chosen by the United Nations to be one of several children around the world who will symbolically represent the global population milestone.

She was delivered just before midnight on Sunday amid an explosion of press camera flashes at Manila's Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital.

Welcome! May she flourish and bring joy to her family, and may many children like her be welcomed everywhere in God's creation!

Psalm 8

To the leader: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.
Lord, our Sovereign,
   how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory above the heavens.
   Out of the mouths of babes and infants
you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,
   to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
   the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
   mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
   and crowned them with glory and honour.
You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
   you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
   and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
   whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Sovereign,
   how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Jeunes profès dominicains à Ottawa


Jeudi soir, j’ai visité la communauté dominicaine pour les vêpres et j’ai diné avec les jeunes profès et leurs directeurs, partageant leurs histories vocationnelles, leurs aspirations et projets d’études et leurs possibilités pour engagement dans la vie de l’archidiocèse.
