Among Women 244: The Power of Forgiveness

August 9, 2019

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

“Among Women” Guest: Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur

Some encourage here to receive God’s forgiveness in our lives, especially in the sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation, as well as learning to bring to God those people we need to forgive, so He can help us to forgive. In this podcast, Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur offers reflections on this important subject from her new book, The Power of Forgiveness, (OSV).
