Terminology Guidelines for Catholic Schools

When the Church speaks of “sexual identity” and says that “everyone, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity” (CCC 2333), she is referring to our objective identity as male and female children of God designed for complementary union with one other and for communion with others; she is not referring here to the subjective experience of same-sex attractions.

The Enright Process Model of Psychological forgiveness by Dr. Phil Sutton

Although Enright is a devout Christian, this model is essentially psychological - and philosophical - rather than religious or spiritual. The Enright model recognizes the religious mandate that to flourish spiritually, persons need to give - or request and receive - forgiveness when appropriate. In the service of this need, the model encourages those trying to forgive or be forgiven to use whatever spiritual and religious inspiration and resources are personally meaningful. But the model offers guidance for how anyone- whether their primary motivation is religious, moral or psychological - may cooperate with the fundamental, universally human, psychological process of forgiveness.

With God All Things Are Possible… Well.. Except THAT!
