    should have done. In nature things happen because they are supposed to happen. Barbara, quit thinking about your self and start praying. Forget about what you can’t control or what you can’t change. Most things just happen, but in a way death is predictable but life isn’t. My Cassie was an accident and a mistake, except what is important is what happens next. I can not change the past but with the benefit of the past I can change the future.

Mrs. LaFleur needs help. She needs to hold the hand of God for comfort and strength and guidance. Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, as a Mother help this woman through her agony and help her find love in her other children. Help her to guide them through life and find respect in what is left. Don’t let the rest of her life be in vain. As my Cassie would say, “Rain brings raindrops and the lucky ones fall on wings of birds, pretty flowers or butterflies.

  • Summary: The Effects Of The Third Ecumenical Council

    Its purpose was to resolve a dispute between Cyril of Alexandria and Nestorius about the nature of Mary and whether or not she should be declared Theotokos (Simonetti, 2006, 808). Nestorius opposed the term because “whenever the sacred scriptures speak of Our Lord’s activity, they never speak of the birth and suffering of the divinity, but of the humanity of Christ.
