Healing Sexual Wounds the Help of the Saints
By Dawn Eden

What People are Saying

Rev. James Martin"Gift of healing."
"A sensitive and poignant effort to offer the gift of healing to some of the most wounded people of our time, with the aid of the wisdom of the great saints. A book that is both moving and useful."
Rev. James Martin, S.J., Author of My Life with the Saints 

"An inspired work."
"An inspired work . . . powerfully moving and hope-filled. . . It is my hope that this book may become a resource readily available: in churches, schools, counseling centers, young adult ministries, libraries, and hospitals. Through it may many whose human dignity has been offended come to know their beauty in the eyes of God, and learn to sing in joy of His love and His mercy. I pray that for every reader this book will be an instrument of grace and instruction."
Mother Agnes Mary Donovan, S.V., Superior General - Sisters of Life

"A powerful and poignant voice."
"A powerful and poignant voice formulating in words the unspoken cry of the heart from those who have been shamefully abused and violated. Dawn Eden-a victim herself-shows readers that there is healing not in repression or misplaced self-blame, but in hiding in the wounds of Christ"
Alice von Hildebrand, Author of The Privilege of Being a Woman 

"Mixes practical advice with inspiration from the lives of the saints."
"Dawn Eden tackles this most difficult of issues with tenderness and grace. She mixes practical advice with inspiration from the lives of the saints, and in doing so reminds us that there are no wounds so deep that the Lord cannot heal them."
Jennifer Fulwiler, Blogger at

"Hope and healing, rooted in Christ."
"With wisdom, compassion, deep learning, and even deeper faith, Dawn Eden offers hope and healing, rooted in Christ, to victims of childhood sexual abuse in this engaging and timely book."
Rev. R. Scott Hurd, Author of Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach 

"Everybody needs to read this."
"Dawn has done a great service for the twenty-first century Church on this most difficult topic. She is honest without being tawdry. Scholarly without being aloof. Compassionate without being pandering. Devout without being being black and white. Because the whole society has been dropped on its head during the sexual revolution, everybody needs to read this."
Barbara Nicolosi Harrington, Executive Director - The Galileo Forum and Studio at Azusa Pacific University
