Knowing our Roots

Fr. Padovani explains how important it is to know our family of origin. We need to recognize the gifts we have received from our background and know who we are and what we know about ourselves. We turn in gratitude to God for all…physically,  mentally, psychologically, spiritually. Sometimes we don’t want to face those issues, especially if they are negative, so we bury them. That is not good. We need to deal with them, understand them, and work with them. Not ignoring our weaknesses helps us to remove the guilt and shame. Fr. Padovani quotes the rule: We don’t talk. We don’t fee. We are depressed. We go back to understand and to develop what has been given to us and take responsibility for that.
