God's Healing Mercy
Do we believe that Jesus can heal us and bring us back from the dead? Pope Francis
Healing, in a word, is resurrection. He forgives all your inequities, He heals all your diseases, He redeems your life from the pit, He crowns you with steadfast love and mercy (Ps 103:3-4).
Here retreat master, Ignatian trained spiritual director and author Kathleen Beckman offers a guide for a personal or group healing retreat based on Divine Mercy in Scripture and in the lives of the Saints. Beckman skillfully helps us to see how the rays of divine mercy heal families, marriages, the sick, poor, suffering, friends, enemies, laity, clergy, our vocations, doubters, believers, those with diabolical suffering, sinners, saints, the unborn, the elderly, children, the Church and the whole world.
Each chapter concludes with a profile in mercy ¬ a reflection on a saint who was a vessel of mercy including Blessed Mother Teresa, St. John Paul II, Cardinal Francis-Xavier Nguyen, Venerable Conchita Cabrera, St. Maria Goretti, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Gianna Molla, St. Faustina, St. Peter and the Virgin Mary.
Also contained in this book are scriptural spiritual exercises for healing:
