Find Healing in the Church (Part 1)

We know that we need forgiveness. However, do we also recognize our need for healing? Dr. Sri shares that Jesus is ready to give us both. He explains our need for healing and how we can follow the examples of the saints as we pursue it.

Snippet from the Show
Jesus doesn’t just pardon us like a judge. He heals us like a physician.


Relating to the Saints

Sometimes it feels as though the saints are unreachable. They can appear unrelatable. However, it is important to remember that the saints struggled too. They struggled with sin and weakness. They were just as in need of God’s mercy as we are. God healed the saints through the Church just as he desires to do for us.


God desires to heal us. God’s mercy did not end on the cross 2000 years ago. He continues to offer us mercy. He desires to forgive us and heal us. He does this through the Church, through her wisdom and the sacraments.
