How do we arrive at forgiveness?

Because the road to forgiveness is personal, there is no absolute methodology or timeframe. Rather, forgiveness is a highly individual and complex process.

Forgiveness: Stories of Redemption draws from many sources that provide a framework for forgiveness. You will explore how the Scriptures show that relinquishing anger and reconciling relationships leads to finding peace. You will also explore literature, which opens avenues of escape and embrace. In addition, you will find a collection of moving stories about individuals who have dealt with suffering and injustice in their lives.

These modern parables of forgiveness are at once remarkably unique and universal in their messages of sorrow, faith, and compassion.

Your guide on this powerful journey is Sr. Camille D’Arienzo, R.S.M., Ph.D. A renowned figure on the topics of forgiveness and social justice, she

  1. Donald M. M., MD

    Spring Survey: April 2017

    Sister Camille did many interviews in preparation and is a plain speaker, from the heart. Forgiveness is the main basis for a happy life, hence it’s importance to my wife and I.

  2. Donald M. M., MD

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    As I stated, Sr. Camille’s course on forgiveness was the best for my wife and I. We have our own liturgies on Sunday mornings in our LR. We have 90 and 86 years and call ourselves “St. PJ’s.” Forgiveness is presented through interviews with others by Sr. Camille. The need for forgiveness is universal and the act of forgiveness heals everybody.
