It’s not often one gets to be present at the creation of something.I had no idea when I began the conversion process to Catholicism that part of the program would include sessions on forgiveness from a professor who more or less invented the process by which angry hearts are healed and oppressors saved. School children in Belfast and Milwaukee’s Inner Core are doing better in school and life when they learn to forgive. Now we are seeing if a church parish can learn to be proponents of this movement.
So far, we’ve had one meeting, and I’ve set up a group site online, but the energy and enthusiasm seems sincere. St. Michael the Archangel came to me after the meeting, and I take that as a very profound vote of confidence from the vanquisher of Satan.
