BBC's child abuse

Current status: complaints, please. The BBC is screening a 'reality TV' series, the 'Baby Borrowers', in which 16-19 yr-old 'couples' are given sole charge of infants and then older children, to see how they will cope. All the people in the programme are being exploited, but by what reasoning the infants could deliberately be left open to abuse and neglect?

Hat-tip to Against the Heresies and Hermeneutic of Continuity.

See here for the BBC blurb on the series; and here for complaints.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
