Priest Finds Newborn Baby in a manger in Queens Church

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

A newborn baby boy was found laid in a manger at a church in Queesn, in New York City. The baby was said to still have his umblical cord attached and was well covered with towels.

Fr Christopher Heanue of Holy Child Jesus Church found the baby. He said:

“I was shocked and yet really moved by it. The church is meant to be a home for those in need. Pope Francis preaches about mercy and this is a Year of Mercy and what more merciful can there be to give a home to someone in need."

The mother of the newborn baby boy has been identified but cannot be purnished for her act because the New York law of “Safe Haven" covers her. “Safe Haven" is a New York Law (also known in some states as “Baby Moses laws”, in reference to the religious scripture) are statutes in the United States that decriminalize the leaving of unharmed infants with statutorily designated private persons so that the child becomes a ward of the state. This law also provides that a person cannot be prosecuted if they leave their child under five days old with a responsible person. So there can be no better “Safe Haven" for the helpless child than the Church.

Bishop Octavio Cisneros, auxiliary bishop of Brooklyn, said: “The baby was wrapped in a towel. He was crying and so obviously well. He was breathing, he had good colour, and his umbilical cord was still attached.
