Gus is joined by Theresa Burke, founder of Rachel's Vineyard, a ministry devoted to helping women, and men, find recovery and healing following the trauma of an abortion. She talks with Gus about how and why she started the ministry, what they do to help women through this, how so many in the medical community don't take abortion trauma seriously and how women, and men, can contact them through their revamped Web site. Afterwards, Gus invites women who've had an abortion to call in and share how that experience affected them and whether or not they've gone through or begun the healing process. We hear from a few brave women who elaborate on what an incredible trauma it is.
Also, today is the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church. It's a very new feast, instituted by Pope Francis in 2018, so Gus invites listeners to call in and share their relationship with the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us!
