Renew America, Matt C. Abbot (from Tonci Weaver): Below is a short and edifying story sent to me by reader Tonchi Weaver. God bless you, Tonchi!
In early 2001, I kept constant vigil with my mother-in-law, who was not Catholic or even very religious, beside the hospital bed of my father-in-law who had cancer and was near death. “Look at him!” she said one afternoon as he lay there silently sleeping. “If he were a dog we could put him out of his misery.” Story is here.
