Forgiveness and healing

David Hohle, C.S.B.

In this chat Dave covers a wide range of issues relating to forgiveness. Among his points are that forgiveness is about healing and freedom. It's an antidote to oppression, and brings about freedom from hate, resentment, and victimization.

The questions asked by site visitors covered many of these topics, including the ability to forgive oneself, to forgive others, and to gain peace about situations where it seems impossible to make amends. The discussion explored what forgiveness actually involves and covered forgiving dishonesty in a business transaction, the feeling of having one's life taken over by human circumstances that prevent one from pursuing one's goals, and how forgiving can impact global situations.
