A Serbian abortionist, a dream of St. Thomas Aquinas, a realization


Sr. Marianne Lorraine Trouve, a Daughter of St. Paul with a special love for St. Thomas Aquinas, reports the story of a doctor in communist Yugoslavia who went from performing 35,000 abortions over decades of practice to being an outspoken opponent of abortion in his country. 

His realization of the humanity of the unborn began with a recurring dream:
In describing his conversion, Adasevic “dreamed about a beautiful field full of children and young people who were playing and laughing, from 4 to 24 years of age, but who ran away from him in fear. A man dressed in a black and white habit stared at him in silence. The dream was repeated each night and he would wake up in a cold sweat. One night he asked the man in black and white who he was. ‘My name is Thomas Aquinas,’ the man in his dream responded. Adasevic, educated in communist schools, had never heard of the Dominican genius saint. He didn’t recognize the name”

“Why don’t you ask me who these children are?” St. Thomas asked Adasevic in his dream.

“They are the ones you killed with your abortions,’ St. Thomas told him.

“Adasevic awoke in amazement and decided not to perform any more abortions,” the article stated.
