Healing Hearts: Experiencing God’s Love – Jul 20 – Homily – Fr Terrance
Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Jul 20, 2021, on how to harmonize our hearts to the truth of our faith that is in our heads. This involves seven suggestions.
00:00 - Intro
00:44 - First, pray to recognize disharmony, head v. heart
that our hearts and heads are not harmonized and ask for the grace to fix this.
01:36 - Second, Understand, then seek to understand why
including recognizing past hurts
03:10 - Third, allow time to grieve
bringing our tears to a wise person and to God,
04:18 - Fourth, Forgive and release
release others and their offenses and our bitterness
05:26 - Fifth, discern how hurts have distorted our view of God and ourselves.
lying thoughts about ourselves and God and replace them with truth, seeing ourselves as God sees us, accepting ourselves as he does. These things help emotionally and spiritually.
07:45 - Sixth, share with God what's on our Hearts
sharing with God what is in our hearts no matter how hurt or empty we think they are.
08:41 - Seventh, ask God to send encouraging people in our lives.
