About this item

“Do we believe that Jesus can heal us and bring us back from the dead?”—Pope Francis

Healing, in a word, is resurrection. “He forgives all your iniquities, He heals all your diseases, He redeems your life from the pit, He crowns you with steadfast love and mercy” (Ps 103:3-4).

Here retreat master, Ignatian trained spiritual director and author Kathleen Beckman offers a guide for a personal or group healing retreat based on Divine Mercy in Scripture and in the lives of the Saints. Beckman skillfully helps us to see how the “rays of divine mercy” heal families, marriages, the sick, poor, suffering, friends, enemies, laity, clergy, our vocations, doubters, believers, those with diabolical suffering, sinners, saints, the unborn, the elderly, children, the Church and the whole world.

Each chapter concludes with a “profile in mercy” – a reflection on a saint who was a vessel of mercy – including Blessed Mother Teresa, St. John Paul II, Cardinal Francis-Xavier Nguyen, Venerable Conchita Cabrera, St. Maria Goretti, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Gianna Molla, St. Faustina, St. Peter and the Virgin Mary.

Also contained in this book are scriptural spiritual exercises for healing:

  • From unforgiveness to forgiveness
  • From fear to trust
  • From anxiety to peace
  • From shame to mercy
  • From pride to humility
  • From powerlessness to prayer
  • From sin-sickness to the Eucharist
  • From spiritual weakness to the Beatitudes
  • From worldliness to works of mercy
  • From spiritual warfare to Christ’s victory
  • Healing the culture through works of mercy

Believers long and desperately need to encounter the living, joyful, truthful majestic face of the Father of Mercy—healer and lover of humanity. These pages lead to a healing encounter.

A Year of Mercy Winner
I am a HUGE Kathleen Beckman fan. I knew I'd love her new book for the Year of Mercy but didn't realize HOW much until I got an opportunity to read it! Kathleen covers so much in this well written, easy to read book which opens your heart to God's love and mercy. Forgiveness, doubt, trust issues, fears - all covered in a very personal and tender way.

Changed my life
This book has changed my life. It is, in essence, a mini-retreat that challenged me to explore areas in my life that needed to be touched by God's healing mercy. The wounds of life inflicted by family members, friends and enemies are addressed by Kathleen as she guides the reader through reflections given by the Saints and the Church to provide comfort, healing and encouragement. The healing that many are seeking after years of spiritual warfare, from powerlessness and from worldliness can be found in this book.

A treasure
This is a rare treasure filled with beautiful and inspiring stories that will lift you up in prayer and in everyday life. This truly is an inspired work of the Holy Spirit and a gift from the author. Read the intro as she explains the challenges to even write it for the Year of Mercy and what went into it. I love the easy to use format for daily readings. I have given it to others who also love it. It is a happy spot in your day to get to read it. Truly one of my favorites!
