Inner Healing-How do I forgive when it hurts so much?

Fr Josemaria

Fr. Josemaria Barbin, FI


Fr. Josemaria was ordained at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception-Manila, Phillipines  on October 7, 2017. He is a member of the Friars of the Immaculate and is stationed at the Marian Friary of Our Lady Coredemptrix in Bloomington, Indiana.

The Franciscans of the Immaculate strive to be perfectly conformed to the poor, humble, crucified Jesus through a life of charity, supernatural obedience and poverty. They are totally consecrated to the Immaculate Virgin after the recent example offered by St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe.

The Franciscans of the Immaculate were founded by the two Franciscan friars, Fr. Stefano Maria Manelli and Fr. Gabriel Maria Pellettieri. Together they outlined a form of life for the friars, sisters and the laity after the example of St. Maximilian Mary Kolbe, giving the fullest expression to the Marian dimension of St. Francis’ ideal and Rule. The Franciscans of the Immaculate was established by Pope John Paul II in 1990 as a diocesan institute. The Institute was erected as a pontifical institute of religious life by His Holiness John Paul II in January 1, 1998, Solemnity of the Mother of God.
