A Prayer for Healing for Victims of Abuse

A Prayer for Healing for Victims of Abuse

Andrea Hoisl

I saw this prayer while visiting the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. The prayer directly spoke to me because it addressed healing for everyone in the Church – the victims, those who love them and everyone who is “broken” from these unfortunate events.  It became crystal clear to me that all of us who are faithful believers are also “broken.”  We need wisdom and grace from God to heal and become whole again.
For it is only in our healing that we can see the future and help move our Church forward.  I can think of no better way for all of us to help others heal than to put the beautiful legacy of love, given to us by Jesus, into action.  Acting with humility, wisdom, grace and justice we can overcome any evil we face in our world.
