This podcast is the third in a series drawn from an 8-day guided retreat I gave at St. Ignatius Retreat House this summer on the theme of The Gift of an Awakened Heart. It addresses our need to get in touch with those wounded areas of ourselves that prevent us from opening ourselves fully to God's love. The length of the podcast is 14:59.
