What do you do when a child is abused at home, maybe physically, sexually or emotionally? What is the Christian response to this?

We live in a world where women are sometimes abused by husbands, friends, or  by others. What can be done to stop the abuse?

Martha Reyes explains to Fr. Mike how she uses the Word of God as an instrument of inner healing. Those who are abused experience anger, depression hatred, grief, etc. Martha believes that we cannot visit the past without prayer. Prayer helps us to acquire the tools we need to give us the resolve to be healed.

Fr. Mike was surprised by a statement Martha made: "Some people get too comfortable with the pain."

As Jesus asked the paralytic by the side of the pool, so Martha asks those hurting: "Do you want to be healed?" One has to desire healing.  Martha talks a bit about her own life and how that led her to help others. There are many ways to help someone in this kind of situation.
