.- During a radio program this week, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani of Lima invited a woman who repented of having an abortion to become an “apostle of life “and help others who have experienced the same tragedy. During the program, Dialogue of Faith, the cardinal took a call from a woman who underwent an abortion four years ago and later repented and sought God’s forgiveness in the Sacrament of Confession.
“God has forgiven you because He is of infinite mercy and kindness, but He also wants to use your suffering and your desire to change,” the cardinal told her. He encouraged her to become an apostle of life and thus help women undergoing similar experiences, in order to help them realize the gravity of abortion.
“Remember the case of Dr. Bernard Nathanson,” he said, “the American abortion doctor who by the help of God and scientific knowledge was touched and discovered the evil of what he had done, and he became an apostle of life throughout the world.”
