July 19, 2011 (Boston) — Pauline Books & Media author R. Scott Hurd, a priest of the Archdiocese of Washington, is releasing his first book titled Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach in September 2011. The book features a Foreword by the esteemed Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington.
“In Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach, Father R. Scott Hurd writes of the spiritual, psychological, physical, and social benefits of learning how to forgive and find peace. Drawing from his pastoral experience, in twenty-four short chapters, Father Hurd examines how human weakness affects such things as our ability to forgive and reconcile, our capacity to trust, and how we cope when another does not accept our apology. Hurd informs that through these very experiences, we find in Jesus Christ and the sacraments a way to move forward toward healing” (excerpted from the Foreword).

He currently serves as Executive Director of the Archdiocese’s Office of the Permanent Diaconate, assists at St. Hugh of Grenoble Church in Greenbelt, Maryland, and is liaison with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) for the implementation of the Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum coetibus.
