Last month BOMA-TT could not host our annual Mass for Hope and Healing due to the lockdown. Many women at this unprecedented time feel the burden of taking care of their homes, their families and themselves. It is in times like these that some women who are pregnant feel an encumbrance in their nine-ten-month journey and the ‘glow’ of pregnancy may be diminished in the current circumstances.
The annual Hope and Healing event usually incorporates those who are having difficult pregnancies; if we could hold your hands right now and implore you to carry on and encourage you to be brave and be strong…we would.
What we do have to give is the reminder of the admirable and remarkable example of St Gianna Beretta Molla who carried an exceedingly difficult pregnancy to its very end. The life of this wife, mother and physician is usually highlighted at our event because of her brave, sacrificial love for her child.
