October is a month when we have a lot of pro-life activities and focus.

I bring to your attention that the movie October Baby is available on DVD and Blu-Ray now.

    Wonderful movie! We bought the dvd and then I sent another one to my college- daughter so that she could share with all of her friends. They even portray Catholics in a positive light although my sister was miffed that the priest didn’t genuflect.

    I saw it twice in theaters, it was so beautiful at least more than half of people were crying/sobbing for more than 1/3 of movie

    It really is a good movie! Many of the Christian movies these days are a bit on the cheesy side, whether from poorly written script or overacting, but this one is well-done. The ending is especially moving.

    Well my wife of four years just informed me she’s expecting. I’m 50 and she’s …, well let’s just say she’s in the minority of being able to conceive at her age, so in our case it’s September baby in September.

    ncsevem: Congratulations! What happy news; I pray your wife and child will both enjoy good health and a safe delivery.

    ncstevem: Wonderful tidings! Prayers for all of you. (I had my last child at 42.)

    Our Catholic Mom’s group watched this and it was very moving. All of us said we wouldn’t cry but couldn’t help it – have kleenex ready! ncstevem: My sister-in-law just had her baby at 45, congratulations!!

    What timing! There is a free showing tonight on the lawn of Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara, CA at 7:30. Bring lawn chairs or blankets + jackets. Proceeds from refreshment sales will benefit local Friday pregnancy centers.

    ncstevem, that’s exciting! I will say a prayer for your family.

    Congrats Nestevem !
    Melissa Ohden’s story is nearly exact to October Baby. Mrs. Ogden was received into the Catholic Church somewhat recently. Her testimony to life is amazing http://www.melissaohden.com/
