Baby Joseph has been Baptized! Fr. Pavone announced “Baby Joseph was baptized just the other day, and Jerry Horn of our Priests for Life team is now his godfather.” This is a miracle! This is indeed a momentous and glorious occasion. Baby Joseph's family are devout Muslims so in my opinion this is a miracle. We can see the hand of God in the events that occurred with Baby Joseph and his family.
Moe Maraachli, Joseph’s father, said in response to this week’s events: “It’s a miracle. My son now has freedom. I’m very happy. My wife and I will respect the second opinion from the hospital in St. Louis. We will accept it with all my heart because Joseph got his human right to get a chance to get a second opinion. When God wants to take his life He’ll take it and nobody can say ‘No’ to God.”
Fr. Pavone stated “All we wanted to do was give the child reasonable care and provide the parents with a second opinion. Period. And thanks to you and the incredible support from pro-life activists all across the country, Baby Joseph got that chance!”
