"As someone who has struggled through the pain of broken relationships, Marge's book is a breath of fresh air.  It reminds us that most families are not exactly Norman Rockwell material.  And while as Christians we are called to forgive, reconciling, even with those in our circle of family and friends, sometimes may not be possible.  With the Blessed Mother as her guide Marge helps us navigate this emotional journey with hope that leads to the healing of our own wounded hearts." — Teresa Tomeo, media expert, motivational speaker, bestselling author

"This book will be an invaluable asset for those who need to forgive and be forgiven. Marge had courageously shared the story of her painful childhood experiences in order to bring others an awareness of a path for healing. Seeking the assistance of the Blessed Mother's guidance in prayer, Mary affirms all her children as they unite their experiences in a deepening relationship with her Son." — Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

"A masterpiece of spiritual insight and practical wisdom, Forgiving Mother is sure to lift readers out of the darkness of the past and into a present suffused with light, love, and healing. — Lisa Mladinich, author, True Radiance: Finding Grace in the Second Half of Life

Do you want to be well? That’s what Jesus asked the sick man at Bethesda. Wouldn’t it seem obvious that he wanted healing since he’d lingered pool-side for decades? Why else would he have been there? 

Do you want to be well? Believe it or not, our answer to that question is often no. We want to be vindicated, excused, hidden, and even at times patronized for the wounds we've suffered. Our complex elationships with parents can be especially difficult to resolve. Marge Fenelon uses her own experience with her mother to guide us to desire authentic healing.

Mary is the answer to our need for healing. She cares about the pain we bear because of the way we’ve been treated and hurt by our mothers. She cares not only about the fact that the pain is there, but also about how to help us heal from it. 

Do you want to be well? Do you really want to be well? Are you ready to go through the work of effecting that healing? Picking up this book could be the important first step.
