The Bethesda Healing Ministry program is centered around our Healing Manual, An Experience of Hope. Both our program and our manual have received many endorsements from the pro-life community:
“The pro-life community is rightly thanking God for raising up Bethesda Healing Ministry to minister to men and women grieving children lost to abortion. Through the Sacraments, Scripture, prayer, and fellowship, participants find reconciliation and peace in a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. May the Risen Lord of life continue to bless and multiply this work of mercy and redemption!”
-Fr. Frank Pavone, Director, National Priests for Life
“Living the Gospel of Life today means rebuilding a culture of life in America. Bethesda Healing Ministry has been doing precisely that for years. This is the Good News of God’s passionate love for us, under any circumstances, in action.”
- George Weigel, Senior Fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center, Washington, D.C.
“The Bethesda Healing Ministry has no identity crisis. From the start it has always known what it is about. Its identity and mission are vitally needed in the world today.
- Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Bishop Ordinary of the Diocese of Phoenix, AZ.
“This manual brings the “good news” of God’s love and forgiveness to those who suffer from abortion. Dear Reader, within these pages you will find evidence for your hope of healing from the emotional, relational and spiritual wounds of abortion.”
- Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, S.V. Ph.D, Superior, Sisters of Life, New York, NY
“Bethesda Healing Ministry offers a radiant witness to Christ’s merciful, healing love. The title, ‘An Experience of Hope’ captures precisely what the manual offers to those wounded by abortion. That hope springs not from “wishful thinking”, but from an ‘entering into’ the great mystery of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection.”
- Chirstopher West, author of The Good News About Sex and Marriage and Theology of the Body Explained.
“Here are found the truths of God’s mercy and love accessible to all who have participated in abortion, offering real freedom from this terrible scourge.”
- Elizabeth N. Brown, MA, LPC, Professional Counselor, Ministry Participant, Manual User
“The Bethesda Healing Ministry Manual is a comprehensive, faith-based resource. It is beautifully written, easy to read, and respectful of the uniqueness of each individual’s healing process. Of greatest significance is the presence, on every single page, of Jesus’ wondrous, hopeful message of love and forgiveness.”
-Rebecca D’Alesio, MA, LPC, Catholic Social Services of Columbus, OH.
“An Experience of Hope opens a way through the dark valley of post abortion trauma. For those with the heart to brave the journey, a resurrection awaits them in the forgiving arms of the Good Shepherd. It does more than enlighten the mind, it can heal the heart. This manual is a must read for educators, pastors, counselors and ethicists.”
- D. Brian Scamecchia, JD, Chairman of Humanities and the Dept. of Catholic Social Thought, Director of Human Life Studies, Franciscan University of Steubenville.
