Jérôme Lejeune

The Curt Jester today references a very good post from MercatorNet, Saintly scientists: Hate the disease, love the diseased. This is about Jérôme Lejeune who discovered the genetic reason for Down's syndrome and spent 40 years of his life trying to find a cure for Down's syndrome or trisomy. The Jérôme Lejeune Foundation continues his work. They seek a cure while others limit themselves to detecting the syndrome early in order to offer abortion as a solution.

I was delighted to hear that the Archbishop of Paris has introduced the cause for his beatification. Subject to the judgement of the Church, pray to the holy doctor for a miracle at the intercession of this great and good man.
