Last week I went to a workshop which was focused on Project Rachel. Project Rachel is a program that helps individuals and families who have been affected by an abortion come to a place of healing. The workshop reflected on the many different components of this healing including emotional and spiritual. During the workshop we heard testimonies from individuals and their families of what brought them to the moment of their abortion. I was reminded of how difficult the whole situation is for all those involved as they see their lives spiral out of control. So as people from around the United States gather to remember the anniversary of Roe Vs Wade what can we do to bring healing. I think that the first thing that we can do is pray in a very specific way for individuals and families affected by an abortion. Let us ask the Lord to help them to know Peace and God’s and our forgiveness. Second, let us pray for our sister’s who are dealing with an unwanted pregnancy, and their families, asking God to help them to know that the child that they are carrying is precious and that we do all that we can to show them that we care for them and their child. Together and with God we can get through every difficult situation.
God’s continued Peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
