The work of watching hope dawn is often difficult and lonely. Some weeks it’s tempting to think the message is falling on deaf ears. And sometimes there is a hostile reaction. When Theresa wrote about late-term abortion, she faced a backlash that is all too common. Yet she keeps reaching out. She keeps on helping, joining us this week on Cradle My Heart Radio with words of hope for those suffering after abortion during this Advent season.
Theresa Bonopartis has served for more than two decades helping people recover after abortion. Her heart bespeaks God’s love.
I first met Theresa in 2003 when I answered God’s call and presented postabortion healing conferences in the Minneapolis area. Theresa reached out to me from her home base in New York to offer support and encouragement.
It was a lovely gesture and one I will never forget.
Although I love this work of watching hope dawn, it is often difficult and lonely. Some weeks on the radio broadcast we don’t get phone calls and it’s tempting to think the message is falling on deaf ears. And sometimes there is a hostile reaction. When Theresa wrote about late-term abortion, she faced a backlash that is all too common, as she voiced here.
Yet she keeps reaching out. She keeps on helping, joining us this week on Cradle My Heart Radio with special care and words of hope for those who suffer after abortion during this Advent season. You’ll also have a chance to win a copy of Theresa’s book, A Journey to Hope Through Divine Mercy.
From her bio:
Theresa Bonopartis is the Director of Lumina/Hope & Healing after Abortion, a post abortion ministry which conducts retreats for women, men, siblings and those who aborted because of an adverse diagnosis. Lumina also provides trainings for clergy members and mental health professionals in post abortion stress. In addition, Lumina has created a network of women and men who have walked through the pain of abortion who are also ready to accompany you through the darkness, into the joy of a renewed life. Theresa is active in the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and Operation Outcry, both of whom speak out about their abortion experiences to educate and in hope of getting others to come forward for healing.
