First Lady Melania Trump Visits Bambin Gesù Children’s Hospital in Rome…

After meeting with the pope earlier in the day, while visiting Italy First Lady Melania Trump went to visit children at Bambin Gesù children’s hospital in Rome.

At the entrance to the hospital Melania stopped to pray before a statue of Mary the blessed virgin mother.

First lady Melania Trump visited with the sick, and engaged with those recovering, while speaking their native tongue.  {{dusty keyboard alert}}

Before leaving the children’s hospital Melania stopped at the chapel to pray:

Melania Trump: “My visit to Bambino Gesu Children’s Hospital today was very moving. To spend time speaking to and coloring with children who have such a positive spirit despite illness was an amazing gift,” stated First Lady Melania Trump.

“The time I spent with the little ones in the Intensive Care Unit is something I will never forget, and I will pray for each of them daily. I want to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the hospital, who all do such beautiful and critical work.”

The First Lady added, “Upon landing in Belgium, I learned a young boy and his family who had been waiting for a heart transplant was informed that the hospital has found a donor. I read a book and held hands with this special little one just a few hours ago, and now my own heart is filled with joy over this news.”  (link)

    This thread is like entering a garden refreshed by a recent rainfall, sweet, glistening, and full of good and beautiful gifts of the Creator.

    Melania evokes the best in us, and represents America with outstanding grace, like an exquisite lily or orchid in full bloom.

        Our elegant First Lady, our National Treasure, spoke of the children she met yesterday as ‘little ones’. I wrote yesterday in a post here at CTH that I recognize in her a servant’s heart. Her heart is for others. She is not a person that seeks or wants attention. Life isn’t about her, its abt those that are helpless and less fortunate.

        Imagine the book that one of those kids may write someday on how meeting Melania Trump changed their life. Their little faces are enthralled in the photos. She is almost Mother Teresa-like, in that people are drawn to her, they want her compassion and sensitivity. And that amazing smile, don’t we all want to see that pretty smile and look into her soul through those eyes?

        For every vulgarity, every hateful remark, every lie, every attack, every jealous rant from some woman on a news set or entertainment show, know that you can not deter this lovely woman of grace.

        I am heartily thankful to have Mrs. Trump as our role model to young women. Her style, warmth, kindness and choice of attire hopefully will revert us back to a time when dignity, self respect and modesty is the latest fashion. Feminine mystique is a powerful force. Melania Trump has returned it to the world stage. If enough women in this world teach their daughters to model themselves after Mrs. Trump, their will indeed be equality for women.

        Our President has spoken of his father often and how his dad would tell him to ‘smooth out the rough places’. In other words, take a breath, step back, don’t over react. I’m sure the senior Mr. Trump smiles down on his daughter in law and thanks her because she is helping his son to ‘smooth out the rough places’.

    To return to my normal shallow waters, the outfit Melania wore at the Vatican was apparently a black lace coat the covered a black lace dress. When she stepped off the plane in Brussels later in the day, she had taken the coat off and the dress was just gorgeous. Sleeveless, with open lacework yoke.

          There is a contrast not a comparison. The more one contrasts Beyonce wannabe, rapper -loving, flag-hating, America-hating, angry black nationalist, atheist Michelle with a world class, humble, genuine, beautiful inside and out, and religious First Lady Melania the more people see the horror of the last 8 years

          No wonder the demons are after our First family–the devil always goes after goodness to destroy it.

          These photos showing Melania’s true spirit cannot be faked, they are heaven sent.

          Just as Michelle O could not take a photo without looking like she wanted to kill all white people, Melania cannot take a photo without showing her innate love, kindness and compassion.

I’ve spent enough time around children’s wards to assure you Melania is genuinely delighted to spread a little love around to those kids. You can spot the fakers and obligatory visitors a mile away.

    President Donald J. Trump Proclaims Memorial Day, May 29, 2017, as a Day of Prayer for Permanent Peace


    – – – – – – –



    Memorial Day is our Nation’s solemn reminder that freedom is never free. It is a moment of collective reflection on the noble sacrifices of those who gave the last measure of devotion in service of our ideals and in the defense of our Nation. On this ceremonious day, we remember the fallen, we pray for a lasting peace among nations, and we honor these guardians of our inalienable rights.

    This year, we commemorate the centennial anniversary of America’s entry into World War I. More than 4.7 million Americans served during The Great War, representing more than 25 percent of the American male population between the ages of 18 and 31 at the time. We remember the more than 100,000 Americans who sacrificed their lives during “The War to End All Wars,” and who left behind countless family members and loved ones. We pause again to pray for the souls of those heroes who, one century ago, never returned home after helping to restore peace in Europe.

    On Memorial Day we honor the final resting places of the more than one million men and women who sacrificed their lives for our Nation, by decorating their graves with the stars and stripes, as generations have done since 1868. We also proudly fly America’s beautiful flag at our homes, businesses, and in our community parades to honor their memory. In doing so, we pledge our Nation’s allegiance to the great cause of freedom for which they fought and ultimately died.

    In honor and recognition of all of our fallen service members, the Congress, by a joint resolution approved May 11, 1950, as amended (36 U.S.C. 116), has requested the President issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe each Memorial Day as a day of prayer for permanent peace and designating a period on that day when the people of the United States might unite in prayer. The Congress, by Public Law 106-579, has also designated 3:00 p.m. local time on that day as a time for all Americans to observe, in their own way, the National Moment of Remembrance.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Memorial Day, May 29, 2017, as a day of prayer for permanent peace, and I designate the hour beginning in each locality at 11:00 a.m. of that day as a time when people might unite in prayer. I urge the press, radio, television, and all other information media to cooperate in this observance.

    I further ask all Americans to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day.

    I also request the Governors of the United States and its Territories, and the appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half-staff until noon on this Memorial Day on all buildings, grounds, and naval vessels throughout the United States and in all areas under its jurisdiction and control. I also request the people of the United States to display the flag at half-staff from their homes for the customary forenoon period.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-fourth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first.

    Per Sundance cue about the keyboard the article started the water works like Old Faithful. God has given First Lady Melania a special faith and a special gift where children are concerned. It is so encouraging to have a First Lady that is not afraid to show her faith in public. The picture of her at the statue praying and at that rally praying forever endeared her to my heart. God not only chose President Trump for this time he also chose First Lady Melania years ago for this.

I think she looks a lot like Sophia Loren (early photos), but her true beauty comes from the fact that she is centered. In her case beauty isn’t skin deep, she is beautiful to the bone.

    That was lovely, and it seems the kids were happy to have a famous visitor to brighten their day. The circumstances that surround a heart’s availability for donation are never happy, as it means the donor had to die. On the other hand, people of all ages die all the time. What are the odds that an appropriate donor would be found for that child only a few hours after our First Lady prayed for him? They say that the intercessory prayers of a truly good person can work miracles for those in need, so I’m convinced that Melania must be such a person.

    I love how spiritual, genuine and pure Melania comes across in all of this coverage!!!

    I hope this isn’t tacky, but I’m also loving, in a different way, an audio tape I recently heard of a Howard Stern radio show in the early 2000s. Our future President was dialed in to Howard’s show, and of course Howard was trying to provoke The Don into some bawdy talk about Don’s “hot new girlfriend”. Howard asked “is she at your place now?” multiple times, so Don put Melania on the phone with Howard.

    At this time, Melania was in her early 30s, not yet married. So Howard asked Melania some provocative questions, asking if she sleeps over at the Donald’s apt every night, etc. Howard was being playful and positive, not too perverted (grading him on a curve).

    Melania’s responses in 2001/2002ish were so intriguing to hear with my 2017 ears! Melania answered Howard with equally playful but not-at-all-scandalous retorts: phrases like, “oh yeah sure, every night, all the time”, as she was laughing and simultaneously shutting down further questions from Howard. She came across as youthful yet smart, good humored but no bimbo, just a real doll. Smart and funny, and not above a little banter. But with not even the suggestion of being a sleaze.

    It’s a really cute recording of Melania and The Donald from their dating years (if you can tolerate Howard Stern’s obsession with sex). I’m really glad they had happy times in those years and pray they still have many more to come despite all the duties heaped upon them.

    But I’ll take the Blessed Mother and children’s hospital story any day, over Howard….

    Celine Dion: Ave Maria– With Lyrics

    Luke 1:46-55…
    And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.

    He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

    He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy: As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever. (Douay-Rheims version)

      The customers were upper class and royalty.
      Much of the music was custom written for funerals.
      I have always wondered if “Ave Maria” (a piece of musical genius) was actually written for a person. I guess it could be.
      But this was back in the day of Renaissance Men, when genius arrived by the trainload.
