Digory: Jadis mocks him as a “Foolish boy” when he refuses to disobey Aslan by stealing the apple of immortality. This would have been accurate earlier in the story, when he strikes the bell to awaken the Witch. Of course, he grows up to be Professor Kirke.

Polly: Three times tells Digory “I’m game if you are”, and always goes bravely into the unknown. She was the first to travel outside our world when she touched one of Uncle Andrew’s rings, and is responsible for collecting the rings for burial at the end of the adventure.

Eustace: Loyally calls himself “The King’s man” when confronted with a possible plot. Is known for having broken King Caspian’s second best sword in battle with the Sea-Serpent.

Jill: Tirian calls her “Wonderous wood-maid” after seeing her skills at stealth and traveling in the dark.

This is Ana Rosa Rodriguez. At first glance, she might look like an average little girl to you. However, if you look closely, you’ll notice that this child is missing her right arm. That’s because her arm was ripped off in the process of an abortion on New York’s Lower East Side in October of 1991. Ana Rosa was 32 weeks old at the time of the abortion. It was performed by legal abortionist Abu Hayat. Rosa, Ana Rosa’s mother (who was only 20 years old at the time), had told Hayat that she had changed her mind and didn’t want to go through with the abortion.

"He said that it was impossible to stop, that I had to continue," Rosa told New York Newsday. According to Rosa, Hayat’s assistants held her down while he sedated her. When she awoke, she was told that the abortion was incomplete and that she should come back the following day. That evening, however, she experienced increasing pain and bleeding. Her mother took her to Jamaica Hospital by taxi, where, five hours later, baby Ana Rosa was born. Aside from the loss of her right arm, Ana Rosa is a perfectly healthy little girl.

Abortion is the slaughter of an innocent living human being. Together, we can end this depraved practice.

The name “ladybird" originated in the Middle Ages when the insects were known as the "beetle of Our Lady”. They were named after the Virgin Mary, who in early religious paintings was often shown wearing a red cloak. The spots of the seven spot ladybird were said to symbolise seven joys and seven sorrows. Common names in other European languages have the same association (the German name Marienkäfer translates to “Marybeetle" or ladybeetle). In the USA the name was Americanized to "ladybug".

In the olden days, British farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help with their crops. Then ladybugs arrived and helped the farmers by eating crop-eating bugs and saved farmers’ crops. In honour of these bugs, the farmers called the beetles “Our Lady’s beetle,” which turned into ladybug.

"Don’t like abortion? Dont have one. Okay. Let’s put that logic other uses. Don’t like murder? Don’t kill people. Don’t like child abuse? Don’t abuse children. Don’t like rape? Don’t rape anyone. Don’t like slavery? Don’t own slaves. Don’t like animal torture? Don’t torture animals? Don’t like gangs? Don’t join one. Failed logic strikes again."

I love candles and the color blue and, most of all, my Catholic faith. Discerning religious life with much more impatience than is fitting.
