Through Project Rachel - the Catholic Church's post-abortion healing ministry - women can find forgiveness and peace of heart through compassionate counseling and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Eternal Father, Source of all mercy and love, out of love for us you sent your Son and willed that blood and water flow from his side to cleanse us of sin and restore lost innocence. Hear the cry of each woman who mourns the loss of her child to abortion. Forgive her sin, restore her to your grace, and still the terror of her heart with a peace beyond all understanding We ask this through Christ our Lord, who conquered sin and death, and who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
