Catholic Teaching on Miscarriages

  1. Rachel says:

    Thank you for making this video, it is so informative!! Where can I find what was published from that counsel that concluded under Pope Benedict? I find great hope in the words you shared and would love to read it and be able to share that document/ excerpts with grieving friends❤️

    Thank you for all you do!!

    Thank you SO much for this video. I am currently going through a miscarriage of my almost 13 week baby. This video covered many of the questions that I had. Do you know of any Catholic books for kids that have miscarried siblings?

    Hi, I actually have a question. Not sure if this is where I should post. My daughter recently miscarried a month into her first pregnancy. It had a lasting effect on my daughter, as I’m sure it does for all those who have suffered through miscarriages, of which I suffered two. Because it was her first, would I be able to give her something on Mother’s Day? In my eyes she is a mom after what she endured. Will she see her baby in Heaven? I would not want to give her false hopes in seeing her baby again one day. Thank you.

    Hi, thank you for all the wonderful work you do with your shows and podcasts! I just wanted to share this with you. https://taylormarshall.com/2008/10/unbaptized-babies-that-die-five.html
    It is about limbo and the teaching of the church and popes and Saints.
    I have had several miscarriages and they have been hard for me in different ways. Thinking my babies were safely in Heaven was a comfort but after learning about limbo and why infants would go there it seems like what might actually happen. And knowing that if they are in limbo that they are not suffering or in pain is also comforting but still hard since I would like them to be in Heaven. I am still learning a lot about our faith and want to be true to the Church’s teachings and traditions. May the Holy Spirit always guide us and our Church into the light of truth.

    Hi Nancy, I never respond online on any comments, but I felt a tug at my heart to do so and tell you my story. I had a miscarriage 18 years ago at nine weeks. It was my first and only pregnancy and at the time it was devastating news. The only thing I could think of doing was calling my parish and seeking spiritual counseling. I was counseled by a Deacon who performed a Baptism and Funeral Rites over me. He asked me to name my baby, which I did, and that simple act helped me in my grieving. A month to the hour that I had that experience I called out to my baby with a heavy heart, which I named Christian and asked him directly if I would ever get to know him. At the time, I was sitting on a plane, waiting for passengers to sit down and within a few minutes a young man asked to sit in the empty seat beside me. Once he did, he turned to me and said, “Hello, my name is Christian. It’s nice to meet you.” It was a beautiful experience to have heard from my son and I pray to him often. Thank you for the video as it confirmed what I felt all along.

    Your video on miscarriage and the Catholic Church teachings was very good . Thank you on sharing your and your mother’s experiences as I think that made it more real compared to sharing of info this sorrow by someone who had never experienced it. Wish we could have had something like this when our grandson was stillborn many years ago. I think this video should be shared by the clergy or someone whenever there is a miscarriage in the parish. Bless you for sharing this ministry with us and also the Little Sprouts program. You also have great parents and family.

    Thank you. What an excellent video and you explain things in a loving manner and express what is in our hearts. As a cradle Catholic from the “old school” teachings, I know the Church doesn’t always have the answers and doesn’t always give the correct support to those who need. These type of life lessons were never really talked about and when they did, the answers did not go with the message of God’s love. My mom, who’s 90, and who had 6 births and lost a baby boy three days after birth, buried him in an unmarked grave next to her Dad. I was not even born yet and she did go on and have two more kids (me and my older brother), so there are 5 but there were 6. But, the church teachings back then, in the 1950s, was so different. and the sad thing is no one ever mentioned him, but I do, once I grew up and learned the family history, so that when I talk about family, I say, I have 3 brothers and name them, Daniel (the baby), Michael (now deceased) and Dennis. Think of all the women who came before you and really, really could have used your words. God Bless you and your family.
