The Ignatian Guide to Forgiveness


M Berzins McCoy

True forgiveness can be complicated because the pain of betrayal, loss, deception, and personal attack clings tightly to our emotions, memories, even our bodies.

In The Ignatian Guide to Forgiveness, Marina McCoy delves into the principles of Ignatian spirituality and uses gentle honesty to lay out 10 steps toward forgiveness, including: Sort out true desires; Honour anger while deepening compassion; Make friends with time; Create a new story. . . and more.

Each chapter offers stories, real-life steps to take, and a powerful prayer for healing. Forgiveness is hard, but it’s also possible—with our “habits of mercy” and God’s abundant grace.
