Well, it took about five minutes to calm her down and I said, 'Listen, my good girl. There is absolutely no proportion between what you have heard and the way you are acting. So there has to be something else. Do you know what I think is wrong? I think you have had an abortion.' She said, 'Yes --so happy that it was out. Now see how that bad conscience came out? She made an attack upon confession, the truth, the faith --but that was not the problem.
