“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed.
It means the damage never controls our lives”
To live with gratitude ever in our hearts is to touch heavens says Thomas Manson. We give thanks to God for giving us the vision to continue his mission of caring for the humanity to give a fullness of life through the Centre for Holistic Healing of the Jaffna Diocese of the Church of South India.
“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”
The Evolution of the Centre for Holisitc Healing
To understand the ministry of the CHH, it is important to understand the context in which the Jaffna Diocese got the vision to walk in the footsteps of our Lord and Saviour. The consequence of the 30 long years of armed violence, the loss, the destruction the displacement and in particular the period before the war ended lead to begin the ministry of rebuilding the community which was and is suffering paved way to form this ministry.
