June 3: Restoring Woman’s Honor

Abbey Foard (M.A., LPC) has worked in healing ministry for over a decade. Having discovered the power of Christ-in-Community to heal and bring orthodox formation in her own life, she is committed to offering the same for others. Abbey is currently the Executive Director of Desert Stream Ministries in Kansas City, MO, equipping the Church to offer healing to persons with sexual and relational brokenness. Also being licensed as a Professional Counselor (LPC), Abbey maintains a private practice in Kansas City. In all her efforts, she is passionate about seeing people made fully alive in areas of their sexuality and relationships—specifically through encountering the God who has woven His divine nature in all aspects related to gender, sex, love, and intimacy.

Abbey will share:

  • The beauty of feminine response is targeted and polluted by misogyny, a demonic assault as old as Eve and aimed at every woman.
  • Misogyny can be as obvious as sexual assault, as pernicious as the failure of men to uphold their commitments to women, and as subtle as veiled prejudice.
  • Mary brings forth Jesus who delivers women from misogyny. While Jesus imparts Divine Advocacy for women, Mary models a renewed responsiveness to that Advocacy.

June 17: Restoring Man’s Honor

Marco Casanova (M.Div.) completed Philosophical and Theological studies at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. After having left priestly formation, he joined the Desert Stream Ministries team. Now as Assistant Director of the ministry, he works closely with Andrew Comiskey in the healing of the sexually and relationally broken, both nationally and internationally. Marco serves at Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Westport, Missouri. Passionate to provide avenues of healing for young adult Catholics in Kansas City and beyond, he is eager to equip the faithful to do the work of this ministry.

Marco will share:

  • Jesus summons men from the corruption of lust and calls them friends, warriors endowed with authority to humble themselves before each other and so become strong in truth. Our becoming real men requires resistance—facing hard areas with focus and fortitude.
  • We are roused to love women well but must overcome the temptation to treat her boyishly, like a mother, or cruelly, like a sexual object. Either initiative incurs her misandry, which casts shame over us like a net.
  • Born of Mary, Jesus leads us to the Father and to each other as sons so together we can become strong in love and love women well.
