When we have a wound to the body we experience pain. This is generally good, as pain points us to the wound so it can be addressed, respected and healed. The soul, like the body can be wounded by deprivations of its basic needs or by traumatic impact. The goal of this talk is to learn about the basic needs of the soul, how our amazing Catholic faith can address and heal the wounds that cause pain to the soul, like anxiety, depression, and loneliness. These common pain symptoms of the soul today often get treated as the problem (something that needs to be disposed of) instead of what they really are, “symptoms” of the real problem “the wound itself”. Come and learn why we can pray hard and long for pain symptoms like anxiety, depression and loneliness to go away, but they don't. Discover Christ's plan for your healing - and see how your wounds, like His, can become the occasion for Glory.
