Reception and Book Signing: May 1, 5pm, The Heritage Foundation
Some extraordinary children seem sent by God to teach us about the “big questions” such as life, death, suffering, and the existence of God. The children in this book, all of whom suffered terribly during their short lives, bore witness to God’s love and an understanding of the meaning of suffering and “what to do with it” that belied their years.
The Jerome Lejeune Foundation Reception and Book Signing will include a co-signing of the new book “Littlest Suffering Souls” by author Mr. Austin Ruse, Mr. Frank Kelly — father to one of the beautiful children from the book, and Madame Jerome Lejeune.
Additionally, at the University of Notre Dame on Saturday, April 29, the Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal will be awarded to the Jerome Lejeune Foundation! For more information, click here.
We are deeply honored by this award, and look forward to continuing with our work to help the “Littlest Suffering Souls”.
