St. John of Kanty – 

Probably few babies in the entire world were ever less expected or more welcome than that little boy named John.  We know him as John the Baptizer.  He was the forerunner of Jesus, sent to prepare the hearts of people for his coming.  His parents understood and taught him that his life was a part of the plan and purpose of God. Wouldn’t it be good if we could understand the same thing about ourselves and our children?  Because it’s true, you know.  Everyone’s life is a plan of God.
