Before coming on a LWHM course Alex suffered loneliness as a result of abandonment as a child when he was sent to boarding school at eight years old. He also had a bullying father. During the prayer he says:
“ I experienced a great upheaval of pain from the pit of my stomach. I asked Jesus into the picture in my mind. He played, carried and walked with me along the path to freedom from this memory.
“With the love of Jesus I was able to want to forgive my mother and father.” After the prayer, Alex continues: “I feel lighter, less oppressed and happy. There is a lively joy in my mind, and a new heartfelt response to Jesus and Mary.”
