The Pain of Miscarriage

I have fortunately never experienced a miscarriage, which makes me somewhat unique among my friends. Miscarriage is very common. It also changes a woman forever. Every life touches others, including that of a child who dies in utero. While every woman is different, many grieve the loss of that child or children forever.

Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for life. has written a powerful article on miscarriage and our need to understand and sympathize with the pain it causes which appears on Catholic Lane: Miscarriage

Lord, comfort all parents who grieve the loss of their children of any age. Take them into Your loving arms, and give us strength until the day You give them back to us in heaven. Amen.

Thank you for posting this. I have lost two babies, one while I was six months along, the other 5 months along. Many well meaning friend and family members said some of the same comments that Fr. Frank mentioned. But the image of the broken egg truly reflected the way I felt for many, many years.

Thank you
