Dominican priest Leo Thomas applies the wisdom of pastoral care to the ministry of religious healing. He does so with practical, concrete, step-by-step explanations of how to offer healing to those who are hurting. The book's goal is to show Christians--lay and ordained, Catholic and Protestant--how to minister together in a powerful way so that hurting people can experience the healing love of God who meets them in their need. The end of each chapter contains reflection questions to help readers bring healing into their own lives while deepening their spirituality. Also included are chapter summaries and a list of recommended resources that expand upon the subjects covered.
...an important resource and training tool for all those especially the vast number of laity in the pastoral ministry to the sick and suffering in our parishes.--Most Reverend Sam G. Jacobs, Bishop of Alexandria, Lousiana"
