Overview

This book is intended to illustrate the great variety of ways in which those ministering in the ‘field hospital of the Church’, are bringing the good news that Jesus Christ is our healer, who ‘binds up the broken heart’ and sets the captives free. This book arises from a Symposium on the Healing Ministry, in Oscott College, in 2015. Major themes were discussed with clarity and simplicity of language, focusing on the healing that people need and receive. This book now makes these pastoral insights and experiences available to the whole Church. Readers will find insights for their life and ministry, inspiration to pay greater attention to the healing ministry and confidence to reach out in faith to heal the wounds that so many people carry. Priests, deacons and lay ministers will be inspired to give even more attention to the healing dimension as they minister in the ‘field hospital of the Church’. We see in the frequent exhortations of Pope Francis that the Church must heal the wounds in her people, a clarion call to take the healing ministry more seriously and to dedicate both time and resources to training her priests and lay ministers to exercise this ministry with prudence and sensitivity. The more we pray and learn together with other Christians in this ministry, the greater will be the blessings of that peace which only Christ can bring to more of His beloved people.
