Addendum To Recent Post: The Aborted Child And Redemptive Love

For those of you who read my recent post on Fr. Wall's pamphlet: An Imaginary Confession, I have added a note to the end of that post. I had passed that article on to our facilitator who has been running Rachel's Vineyard retreats in our archdiocese for more than 10 years. She raised some valid concerns about the imaginary confession especially for those who may not have had any or very little healing since their abortion.Every person's experience with healing is different and comes at different rates. God gives each of us what we are ready for when we are ready to accept it.
If you read my post earlier in the week, I thank you for taking the time to do so and for your supportive and encouraging comments, but I do urge you to go back and read the brief note that I have added to the end of the post.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
