A path to forgiveness

True forgiveness can be complicated because the pain of betrayal, loss, deception, and personal attack clings tightly to a person’s emotions, memories, and bodies. In The Ignatian Guide to Forgiveness (Loyola Press, 2020), Boston College Professor of Philosophy Marina Berzins McCoy uses the principles of Ignatian spirituality to lay out 10 steps toward forgiveness. Each chapter offers stories, real-life steps to take, and a powerful prayer for healing. McCoy is an educator, spiritual director, and volunteer at a men’s prison, where she leads discussions on spirituality. She was interviewed about her new book by the Jesuit Conference’s podcast, AMDG: A Jesuit Podcast.
