“Give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace” (John Paul II, to those who have had abortions…Evangelium Vitae, 99).
Reflection: Every day, around the world, men and women who have lost children to abortion gather for Rachel’s Vineyard retreats, which provide an opportunity to face the wounds of abortion in a safe, affirming environment of prayer and the support of others who have been through the same experience.
Prayer: Lord, be with all those who are going through healing after abortion, and bring them quickly to your peace. Amen.
