"Let Them Come And See For Themselves"

If you can get through the first several self-congratulatory paragraphs, Lifesite has an intriguing article about an experience shared by the husband and father-in-law of Susan Torres, the brain-dead woman who died after giving birth to her child ("brain-dead." "died." "giving birth." --This is the most self-contradicting sentence I've ever read or written.)

Susan's husband and father-in-law were each awakened in their separate homes in the middle of the night, on the night that Susan collapsed (the article doesn't state whether this is before or after Susan collapsed) by "a woman's voice" (Mary??) telling them to write this message:

“You and others will tell the world of a fight to save a precious life, not to change hardened hearts, but to give hope to those who believe, so that they know that there is more than what they see and hear. Let them come and see for themselves.”

Let them come and see for themselves with the eyes and ears of their hearts. Reminds me of the passage in Matthew: "But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear. "
