Receive Christ the Healer into Your Heart
The Gospels are filled with stories of Jesus healing those around him, not only reconciling them back to the Father, but also more immediate healings of their mind, emotions, and body. God wants to make us whole, and Christ's earthly ministry shows us how he reaches us in our brokenness.
Christ's healing ministry didn't end at the Cross, or even his Resurrection. His mercy and love still overflow in the Church, and his arms are open to all who suffer from trials great and small. Ave Maria Press has collected the best resources to bring you closer to Christ and to find the healing and peace he longs to give you.

Be Healed with Bob Schuchts
First published almost ten years ago, Be Healed has established itself as the classic guide to spiritual healing. Based on the popular program at the John Paul II Healing Center, this book offers hope in the healing power of God through the Holy Spirit, the sacraments, charismatic spirituality, scripture and Church wisdom.
Now available as a commemorative hardcover, as well as in paperback and Spanish!
“Do you want to be healed?”
Jesus asks that question several times in the Bible—of the woman at the well, Bartimaeus the blind man, the woman caught in adultery, the rich young man—and he asks the same of you as well.
Do You Want to Be Healed? is a 10-day personal retreat that uses a healing process similar to the one found in the author Bob Schuchts’s bestselling book Be Healed.
