Out of the Darkness
This type of healing is for a man who is not only battling with life’s daily struggles and temptations, but is finding himself stuck in certain areas. For instance, a man may have an addiction or multiple addictions, which are preventing him from full participation in his vocation and therefore in need of an intensive recovery program. A man may have an arrested development from his youth, which needs to be addressed so he can advance to the next stage in his masculine journey and grow emotionally and spiritually. This healing may involve the following steps:
Possible participation in an intensive recovery specific program like Alcoholic Anonymous or any other 12 step program that might address that man’s issue (i.e. drugs, sex, overeating, etc);
Consideration of professional counseling with a good Catholic therapist (visit www.catholictherapists.com);
Participation in a weekly men’s group that offers solid Catechesis, formation in virtue, accountability, friendship and mentoring;
Frequent communions (in a state of grace) and confession (as often as is needed).
