Overview

At the core of every story of forgiveness is Jesus and his cross. In this book, Catholic spiritual writer Anne Costa shares her own story of forgiveness and healing as well as those of many others. In the process, she encourages readers to take their own journey. By dispelling myths about what forgiveness is—"I need to be free of bad feelings to forgive" or "In order to forgive, I have to forget"—Costa helps readers remove the obstacles that may be blocking the healing process. She explores such emotions as anger, grief, and fear and their effect on the healing process and also discusses our need to forgive God—and ourselves. Costa is a reassuring guide who shares her deep insights with compassion and offers us a road to healing that leads us right into the loving embrace of Jesus.
