Life, worth the cost: "The pastor of the Torres' parish writes in the bulletin: "Baby Susan herself, by her very weakness and helplessness, forced us to reexamine our standards. In her, as in all the unborn who silently appeal to us for life, we encounter the truth that, 'God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong' (1 Cor 1:27). They demand that we set aside our mercantile, quid-pro-quo view of the world. We do not measure success by a long life, or wealth, or pleasure, or fame. We measure success by fidelity to love. Susan called us out of ourselves and forced us to reorder our lives according to the standards of love, not the world. Because the success of love is in the loving. "
