Our Healing Prayer Service: A Follow-Up Reaction

By Michael D. Hoffman

I participated in a first-of-its-kind prayer service for abuse victims and for those they love, led by childhood sexual abuse victims/survivors from across the country. It was a truly transformative experience for me, and I hope it was for the others who participated in the prayer service as well. With the Holy Father’s approval of the Universal Day of Prayer for healing of all abuse survivors, this public prayer service was an effective way to raise awareness of the issue of child abuse in our church and society, and ways to prevent it. Thank you, Teresa, for bringing together so many people from across the country in this heartfelt effort to heal broken hearts.
