    Thank you, Shae, for sharing. Jesus really did take away the sins of the world.
    Your young age and the fact that you didn’t understand the gravity of the situation makes you less culpable. But I understand your misery and sorrow.
    God bless you. Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.

    Aidenk,

    You didn't know it as it isn't your fault. Don't hold it against yourself as it's a recipe for guilt. U did your bit re confession and let it bygones by bygones.

    Way back then I didn't know what I was doing and felt guilt due to pstd. One priest said to me confess it and let it go. It wasn't that easy but time is a great healer. I don't think about it now. Forgive yourself as you forgive others.

    Be at peace Shae. Our Lord has forgiven you.

    I was pro-choice for many of my younger years. We are so idealistic when we are young but we have very little experience in the real world. I repented of that years ago when I came back to my faith and I still struggle with those beliefs from time to time. It is a real sorrow. You were young and idealistic and trying to help a friend. It is a hard place to be. May the Lord bless you abundantly and remove all bad emotions about this for you.

    My dear brother in your testimony , for which I thank you, you stated that you wanted to help a friend and this speaks volumes. Really that person should not have included you in her wrong doing. You were a naive young man immature in the ways of the world and matters of faith and morals. Mother Angelica RIP, of EWTN fame once said its a kind of hubris to assume that Gods forgiveness is not big enough to include us. I now know that sins of the youth which are repented and forgiven can be used to enrich us if viewed in a truly Catholic way.

    Dearest Shae I too live with this. A college roommate--and I helped her. Why? What was I thinking?. I too have carried this for many years. I wouldn't wish this agony on my worst enemy. I have taken this to Confession and know I am forgiven and I have forgiven myself(the necessity for this was showed to me by the Holy Spirit) but it is not easy. So Aiden you are not alone. And Shae thankyou for sharing this. It was helpful to me--and I know it must be helpful to Aiden.

    Such a pretty name. Do you know its origins? I'm guessing Irish with the "een" suffix

    Ok, that means little Shael as een is English derivative of the Gaelig suffix "in" meaning "little"
