The Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for Children in London was the beneficiary of a generous gift from Sir J. M. Barrie in 1929: the rights to his masterpiece, Peter Pan. The adventures of the “boy who never grew up” have bankrolled GOSH’s rise to the status of one of the world’s most renowned children’s hospitals. Ironically, GOSH played a key role in blocking the parents of Charlie Gard from seeking treatment elsewhere so that their little boy might have one last chance to grow up.

As we Catholics know, being pro-life means much more than just preventing women from having abortions. As one who’s been involved in the pro-life movement over the years, I’ve witnessed firsthand the care and concern crisis pregnancy centers have offered women who find themselves in dire straits. Indeed, without such help, a pro-life movement would be strictly legalistic, without heart.


So it makes sense that those who are pro-life will want to ensure that pregnant women and their babies are provided the best possible medical care.

Savannah--Rowing an 18-foot-long open canoe solo along the Intercoastal Waterway from Miami, Florida to New York, New York Greg Dougherty hopes to draw attention to the Centennial of the Marian apparitions at Fatima. His 1,400-mile nautical pilgrimage began June 13.

The craft named the Santa Maria de Fatima packed with bags of food, clothes, emergency gear and a statue of Our Lady of Fatima looks both cramped and small for such a long voyage.

Bulletin of the Catholic Laymen’s Association editor, Richard Reid, wasn’t the first Georgian to receive the prestigious Laetare Medal from the University of Notre Dame, but he was the most unique in many ways. Evidently a man who never sat still or wasted time, Reid managed to earn multiple degrees in law and other fields while editing the Bulletin.
