A Catholic Guide to Healing for Adult Children of Divorce
“Grief is a call to expand our hearts.” Dr. Daniel and Bethany Meola have worked with hundreds of individuals from broken homes who are grieving—grieving the divorce or separation of their parents, grieving the loss of the “ideal” family, even grieving a sense of identity rooted in parental love. They have pulled together valuable insights and wisdom from their work into a new book, “Life-Giving Wounds: A Catholic Guide to Healing for Adult Children of Divorce or Separation.”
In this episode, host Andrew Petiprin speaks with the Meolas about their book and their work with adult children of divorce—work that is particularly critical in our day and age, in which huge numbers of people come from homes broken by divorce or separation. Grief, anxiety, anger—these emotional wounds from parental separation are often hidden. But, according to the Meolas, these same wounds can be opportunities for healing and redemption. Their message is ultimately one of hope—that these wounds do not have to define us, but can become sources of life and strength.
