Daughters of Jerusalem

"Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over me; but weep for yourselves and for your children." (Luke 23:28)

It has occurred to me more and more how many walking wounded there are in our society and in our Church. I am only beginning to comprehend the level of despair and infinite pain that lives in the hearts of an unimaginable number of women whose children were victims of abortion. Many were coerced into making such a "choice." Furthermore, abortion is not just something that happens to a mother and her child; it happens to the entire extended family, whether they are aware of the abortion or not. Here are some sites that offer healing and reconciliation not only to mothers of dead babies but to the fathers and grandparents as well. Share

Thank you for stirring thought on a subject that is often hushed or trivialized. Deep reflection is needed. Thanks.

It would do well for all of us, post-abortive and not, to remember what Christ said: "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
