Theresa Little Flower and Joseph Marie Koinzan

An email I received today (yesterday):
Theresa Little Flower Koinzan was born dead 31 weeks after conception on Mother's Day 2006. She is our gift to the Blessed Virgin Mary for Mother's Day. We are honored to have such a beautiful gift to present to our Heavenly Mother.

Joseph Marie Koinzan was born dead 14 weeks after conception on Nov. 6th, 2006. Joseph has shown us how perfect life is from the moment of conception. He was consacrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus while still in the womb.

We are honored to have two little Saints to pray for us always.

Eternal rest grant unto them Oh Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them. May our babies rest in peace. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

+Requiescant in pace.
