Blessed Feast of Sts. Joachim and Anne! #saints #inspiration
St. Anne Leading the Virgin to the Temple by Jacques Stella
Today is the feast of St Anne, the mother of Mary. It just so happens my own dear mother is called Anne too!
"Gerhard Herbert Kretschmar (20 February 1939 – 25 July 1939), was a German child born with severe disabilities. After receiving a petition from the child’s parents, the German chancellor Adolf Hitler authorized one of his personal physicians, Karl Brandt, to have the child killed. This marked the beginning of the program in Nazi Germany known as a “euthanasia program" (Aktion T4) which ultimately resulted in the deliberate killing of about 200,000 people with mental and/or physical disabilities."
