“We believe that forgiveness is a choice,?????Dr. Robert Enright is quoted in the June 7 issue of the Madison Catholic Herald.?????If you have been deeply hurt by another, you can choose to forgive rather than hold on to debilitating anger and resentment. In doing so, an amazing transformation begins.???
The founder of the International Forgiveness Institute, Dr. Enright,??further explains, ???When you forgive, you may benefit the person you forgive. But you benefit yourself far more. By liberating yourself from pain and sorrow, you can reclaim your life and find the peace that your anger had stolen.???
According to the article, Dr.??Enright believes his new book,??The Forgiving Life: A Pathway to Overcoming Resentment and Creating a Legacy of Love, is the ???best work I???ve done.???
He is also beginning work on another book,??The Church as Forgiving Community, to be published by Our Sunday Visitor. Cardinal Raymond Burke (Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome??who previously served as Archbishop of St. Louis, MO,??and Bishop of La Crosse, WI) will be writing a chapter for this book, as will Bishop Robert C. Morlino of Madison, WI,??and Bishop Salvatore Cordileone??? of Oakland, CA.
