Say a prayer for the Santorum family


Philly.com: The three-year-old daughter of Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has been admitted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the candidate has cancelled his Sunday morning campaign events to be at her side.
Santorum campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley said Saturday night that the former Pennsylvania senator and his wife, Karen, were with Bella at CHOP. Gidley said Santorum planned to return to campaigning as soon as possible in Florida, where the Republican primary is Tuesday.
Bella Santorum has Trisomy 18 (also known as Edwards Syndrome), a genetic condition caused by the presence of all or part of an extra 18th chromosome. Bella was not expected to survive until her first birthday and concerns over her health have canceled previous Santorum campaign events.
Santorum had been scheduled to appear on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and to attend church in Miami. He was in the Philadelphia area as recently as Friday night to attend a campaign fundraiser in Chester County.
Prayers for little Bella, hope she gets well very soon!

    CHOP is one of the best children’s hospitals in the country. I wish her the best.

     
  2. Meet their daughter Bella…

     
  3. Bless her little heart! 🙁 Yes, Lord, please be with the Santorum family as they face this trying time, give them faith, comfort and courage… may you shine your grace and mercy upon little Bella, and your peace be bestowed upon them, in Jesus’ precious name, AMEN.

     
  4. Thanks for letting us know, DCG. I will offer this morning’s Mass to little Bella and pray for her recovery.

     
  5. May God bless her, protect and heal her and lift up the family as they care for her.

     
  6. The video is a beautiful testament to life. Senator Santorum has been my choice all along but this clip reaffirms my beliefs. I will keep little Bella in my prayers. A little one like Bella is pure love. I do not disregard the heartache but I recognize the joy. May God be with the Santorums, and her physicians.

     
  7. Dear Lord Jesus. We are lifting Bella up to you tonight because she needs your help right away. We pray a hedge of fire around her to protect her and we would ask for your mercy towards the Santorum family. You are Jehovah Rophe the Great Physician so she is getting supernatural care. You certainly have angels encamped around and about her as she goes through this ordeal and we pray for a good report and a miraculous outcome.
    We prasie and thank you for this opportunity to reach out to one more time, we love you Lord and we worship you in the beauty of holiness. ITNOJ AW

     
  8. Just saw on newsfeed that Bella is better. Although she has pneumonia, she is past the scary point, thank God!
