A Healing Journal

A Healing Journal Exercise

In honor of this year’s Catechetical Sunday theme of “Say the Word and My Soul Shall Be Healed,” we offer a spiritual journaling exercise to help teachers, catechists, and parents reflect on the tensions of life and identify places in need of healing. The journal prompts are excerpted from Writing to Be Whole: A Healing Journal by Eddie Ensley and Robert Herrmann.

As we continue to emerge from the isolation the pandemic forced upon us, we recognize we all need healing, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual. Take time to acknowledge points of pain and invite Jesus into the healing process.
