WORKS OF MERCY TRUST
This past spring, the Bishop Stanley Joseph Ott “Works of Mercy Trust” Fund extended grants to three deserving organizations. Since its inception in 1991, nearly half a million dollars has been awarded to area non-profits, continuing the legacy of charitable work fostered by Bishop Ott. This year’s worthy recipients include the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention Center, The Life of a Single Mom Ministries, and The St. Elizabeth Foundation. According to a recent article in The Catholic Commentator, “Funds are administered by the stewardship office and non-profits are selected by invitation only.”
“The St. Elizabeth Foundation, open since 1988, is a Baton Rouge adoption agency that provides confidential, comprehensive counseling services to those facing an unplanned pregnancy in Louisiana, providing medical care, counseling, and continuing education for birthparents and adoptive parents.” Members of the loving staff of the St. Elizabeth Foundation have helped place more than 400 babies and have served dozens and dozens of individuals and families.

“A Child My Choice”
Let folly praise what fancy loves,
I praise and love that Child, whose heart no thought,
Whose tongue no word, whose hand no deed defiled.
I praise him most, I love him best, all praise and love is his.
While him I love, in him I live, and cannot live amiss,
Love’s sweetest mark, laud’s highest theme,
Man’s most desired light.
To love him life, to leave him death,
To live in him delight.
He mine by gift, I his by debt, thus each to other due.
First friend he was, best friend he is,
All times will try him true.
Though young, yet wise; though small, yet strong;
Though man, yet God he is.
St. Robert Southwell,
Catholic Poet and Martyr
