New book on Healing -“OUR GOD HEALS”
“Our God heals” is written by Fr. Nicholas Broadbridge OSB, who was Chaplain and Spiritual Director to Alton Day of Renewal for many years.
The subtitle of the book is “To set free those who are oppressed.” If you are oppressed or in despair, this book will show you where and how to find healing of your spirit, through Jesus’ use of the powers of the Holy Spirit.
In his foreword to the book, Charles Whitehead says: “In this remarkable book, Fr. Nicholas draws on many years of careful thought and study, all brought to reality through his practical experience of giving teaching workshops which are admirably illustrated by the stories, testimonies and examples contained in page after page of his book”.
Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, Preacher to the Papal Household, wrote: “The foreword of Charles Whitehead is sufficient for me to be sure that this book deserves every credit and will help many people.”
From the Catholic Herald
Our God Heals by Fr Nicholas Broadbridge (New Life Publishing. £9.99). The author, a monk at Douai Abbey for more than 60 years, has run healing workshops, family healing sessions and retreats. Now he concentrates on one-to-one sessions only. Reflecting on themes of love and forgiveness, deliverance and the gifts of the Spirit, Fr Broadbridge uses scriptural passages and many personal stories of those he has encountered during his ministry to illustrate his message that God longs to set free those who are oppressed. Catholics who are wary of healing as somehow “ charismatic “ should read the testimonies recounted in these pages.
