Rev. Michael J. Garanzini, S.J. holds a doctorate in psychology. He has written about a variety of therapeutic dynamics--particularly as they manifest in family settings--often situating these dynamics in the light of spiritual and theological insight.

At the first Catholic Q&A of the semester, Father Garanzini will dig deeper into psychological and sacramental considerations and reflection and ask: "Why is forgiving someone is so difficult? Is there such a thing as righteous anger?  How do we move forward? What is the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation? How does Clinical Psychology think about  this? How does Catholic theology/spirituality think about this?"
