READ THIS READ THIS NOW! – UPDATE!

From the “Your good news” thread just a few minutes ago:

Singing Mum says:

In hosp about to deliver my fourth boy, Dominc Miguel.
He is Dominic for the holy founder and Miguel for St Michael and Bl. Miguel Pro.

I love my men!! God willing, He may have one or all as priests.

FanTAStic!

Everyone!  Please stop NOW and say a pray for a good and safe delivery!

UPDATE 2 March 2020 GMT:

Singing Mum writes in a comment, below:

For all your prayers and kind words- a thousand thank yous!
Little Dom was born in a monastic hour, 4:53am, weighing 7lbs, 4oz, and measuring 20&1/2″.  He has exhibited a gentle spirit thus far, which is quite welcome in a family with four boys.
His baptismal date, and subsequent birth into Christ, will be March 19, [OOH-RAH!] because it’s easy to remember as St. Joseph’s day. And why not add on another mighty patron?
I’m doing just fine after a long labor, and my husband Bill is a great help. Dom’s older brothers will storm the hospital to greet their brother this evening.
Thanks again, Fr. Z and all for prayers!

You are welcome.  And now we can also add a prayer of thanks.

    Mjballou, onward and upward with your Irish songs with harp idea! If you are still interested, we can start conspiring soon! CMAA Colloquium?

  23. Flambeaux says:

    Deo gratias! Let Te Deum be sung!

  24. marthawrites says:

    May your new son stay close to his powerful patrons. In selecting them for this little one, you have given him a great and prophetic gift. One of the marvelous joys of being a Catholic is becoming familiar with the rich array of saintly lives which have gone before us and attaching ourselves to some with whom we relate in a deeply personal way. I consider St. Martha a match made in heaven for me. Congratulations, Singing Mum!

  25. Dr. Eric says:

    Congratulations, Singing Mum! I pray that little Dominic Miguel grows up healthy, happy, and strong. And, God willing, that he becomes a priest.

    (My oldest son’s name is Dominic, good choice!)

  26. bernadette says:

    Congratulations on the birth of your fourth boy! I never experienced the joy of having a son, only three girls. Not that there is anything wrong with that!

  27. Mitchell NY says:

    God Bless your new baby, family and home…I am a March 18th baby, day before St. Joseph’s and a day after St. Patricks….Puts alot of pressure on me to fill in that Saintly space. Well I try..I suspect this year will have many joys for you and your entire family.

  28. Prof. Basto says:

    Congratulations, Singing Mum.

    May God richly bless your child.

    LAUDETUR IESUS CHRISTUS IN AETERNUM!

    Benedicite, omnia opera Domini, Domino; laudate et superexaltate eum in saecula; Benedicite, caeli…

  29. Joan M says:

    Thanks be to God for a safe delivery.

    Congratulations on the new baby.

  30. Random Friar says:

    Blessings be upon mother and child!

  31. irishgirl says:

    Congratulations on your new son, Singing Mum!
    And what a great day for him to be baptized-St. Joseph’s Day!

  32. Kinda overachieving on the Holy Father’s spiritual bouquet, eh? :)

    God is very good.

    Wonderful news. God bless you all.
