Pope Francis said, “I see the church as a field hospital after battle. The thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and warm the hearts of the faithful. It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if they have high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars! You have to heal their wounds”.
In response, Michael Hansen SJ, author of the award winning ‘The First Spiritual Exercises’, wrote new spiritual exercises for “God’s Field Hospital”. This little book, “God’s First Aid Kit” takes one exercise from each department.
So it’s a sampler, a taster of 25 field hospital exercises, for anyone or any group in immediate need.
These exercises have been given world-wide for two years, being especially directed to help people during the COVID pandemic. Immensely popular and deeply transforming.
The full book ‘God’s Field Hospital’ will be published late in 2022.
