Bring My Peace to your place

As I prepare for my April 23 talk and signing at Washington's Catholic Information Center to launch my upcoming book My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints, I am also lining up other personal appearances.

My Peace I Give You, which bears an Imprimatur from Donald Cardinal Wuerl, is the first book ever to provide a Catholic approach to spiritual healing for adult victims of childhood sexual abuse. (Read praise for it here.) There are several different talks I can give on the book. The subtitle itself makes an excellent topic for a general talk, but I can also give a talk on the topic of each individual chapter. To list just a few:

  • "Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints"
  • "The Love We Forget: Discovering the Father—with St. Ignatius Loyola and St. Josephine Bakhita"
  • "The Love that Shelters: Opening Our Hearts to the Sacred Heart—with Mary, Mother of Hope"
  • "The Love that Transforms: Learning the True Meaning of Spiritual Childhood with St. Thérèse of Lisieux"
  • "The Love that Grows Deeper: Drawing Closer to God and to One Another—with Dorothy Day"
  • "The Love that Heals: Finding Our Past, Present, and Future in the Eucharist—with St. Thomas Aquinas and Blessed Karolina Kózka"
If you are interested in having me speak at your bookstore, parish, college, or other venue, write me via my feedback form for a complete list of topics for talks.
