The power of conscience

This story of the woman who finally fessed up to armed robbery brought to mind Cardinal Newman's view of personal conscience as a "connecting principle between the creature and his Creator.”

With God's grace, may this ersatz robber find the comforting Voice that prompted her to turn herself in after all these years.

Funny, I just read that story a minute before I checked out your site. She said she wanted her son to have a normal life. I suppose having a mother in jail will be more normal than the life they were living. May God bless her!

Absolutely; and who knows how her courageous decision, although it will separate them for a time, will end up being a HUGE life lesson for him, for the good.
