On July 31, the feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, I had the honor of speaking at Washington, D.C.'s Catholic Information Center on "Healing of Memory: What St. Ignatius Loyola and Pope Francis Can Teach Us."
The talk was almost entirely new. My aim was to make the core message of my book My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints relevant for everyone seeking healing from painful memories—not only those who have suffered abuse—and to do so by way of Pope Francis's Jesuit spirituality.
Here is a recording of the talk and the question-and-answer period that followed, courtesy of the kind people at the CIC.
Please pray for me as I prepare to move from Washington to Mundelein, Illinois, to do my doctorate in sacred theology.
Also, if you have benefited from my writing or speaking, please consider making a donation to help me as I continue my studies and as I continue to share the message of My Peace I Give You. Thank you and God bless you.
