       The artist behind the piece, Slovakian sculptor Martin Hudacek, was able to present a replica of his Memorial for Unborn Children to Pope Francis during a recent Wednesday audience in Rome. The sculpture portrays a mother in tremendous sorrow, mourning her abortion, her face buried in her hands. She is approached by another figure, her aborted child, as ayoung child. Her child comes to her in a remarkably touching and healing way, placing a hand on her head, emanating forgiveness.

The work has garnered praise for its effective depiction of post-abortion suffering, communicated sensitively, and the significant emotion it elicits continues to draw attention.

 

"The inspiration is from the Holy Spirit", Hudacek told LifeSiteNews while in Rome to meet the Holy Father. Memorial for Unborn Children's message of healing, mercy, and forgiveness applies beyond those directly impacted by post-abortion syndrome. Hudacek has also said it expresses hope given to believers by Christ, Who died on the cross for us, showing how much He cares for us.

 

"We were in the first row", Zeidler told LifeSiteNews. "When he came to us, I spoke to him in Spanish, saying that this [Martin] is the sculptor who did this work for you. It is a work that captures post-abortion pain, forgiveness, and mercy."

 

Zeidler then shared with the pope that the sculpture was a gift from Hudacek and Proyecto Esperanza (Project Hope), a post-abortion assistance program approved by CELAM (the Latin American Bishops' conference) throughout Latin America.

 

The pontiff was delighted with the gift, stating, "Muy hermosa" (very beautiful) two times. "He seemed very pleased," said Zeidler...
