Forgiveness is hard. But Jesus knows how much we need it. True forgiveness can be complicated because the pain of betrayal, loss, deception, and personal attack clings tightly to our emotions, memories, even our bodies. We may intend to forgive yet become stuck in our own mixed motives, others' silence or anger, and the skewed stories we believe and tell about our lives. 

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
  • Honor 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.
