How Do I Find Healing After an Abortion?

Today, Fr. Josh answers a comment from Ursula Bielski: “I had an abortion. I now cannot believe I was not strong enough to have my baby. But the fact that my much older boyfriend and “Catholic” mom told me to not have the child… it completely overwhelmed me. Not a day goes by that I don’t regret what I did. They say “it takes a village to raise a child.” Well, that starts at conception. We all MUST support women in this situation.”

While Fr. Josh was raised Catholic, he didn’t like the Church growing up. Then, one day in adoration, he fell in love with Jesus and received the call to become a priest.

Now, Fr. Josh is the Vocations Director of the Diocese of Baton Rouge in Louisiana. He is a presenter in four of Ascension’s programs: Altaration, YOU: Life, Love, and the Theology of the Body, The 99, and Connected: Catholic Social Teaching for This Generation, as well as the author of Broken and Blessed: An Invitation to My Generation, Pocket Guide to Adoration, and co-author of Pocket Guide to Reconciliation.
