If you are burdened with regret and feel that you must live with the pain, this is the book for you. Sr. Kathryn will show you a path toward healing.

—Timothy M. Gallagher, OMV, author of The Discernment of Spirits: An Ignatian Guide to Everyday Living


Some books are to be read, others savored. This book offers us a banquet table of scriptural truths and transformative experiences leading readers to taste and see the goodness of the Lord. It illuminates in personal and practical ways the paradoxical reality that in every limit there is a blessing in disguise, that in every regret there is a reason for hope.

—Susan Muto, PhD, Dean of Epiphany Academy of Formative Spirituality


This practical, hope-filled book, is beautifully written and full of wisdom gleaned from years of personal experience and ministry. In Reclaim Regret Sr. Kathryn serves as a trustworthy guide, leading you first into the heart of God and then into your own heart. I encourage you to read this book with an open heart and then enter into the healing meditations that make up the second part of the book. As you do, you will engage in a process of deep soul healing, releasing the regrets and disappointments that have prevented you from living the fullness of joy that Jesus promises.

—Bob Schuchts, founder of John Paul II Healing Center, Tallahassee, Florida, and author of Be Healed: A Guide to Encountering the Powerful Love of Jesus in Your Life


With utter confidence in God’s abiding love, Sr. Kathryn James deftly guides her readers on a healing journey, transforming regrets into life-giving possibilities.

—Mark Neilsen, writer and former editor of Living Faith: Daily Catholic Devotions


Words don’t change hearts; grace does. But these words of Sr. Hermes facilitate grace in a powerful way. With great insight, she has tapped into what wounds the human heart, and she shows, as if by intimate knowledge, the ways of a Loving Father who desires to heal. Read these words, practice the exercises, and let your heart by healed.

—Dr. Gregory Bottaro, Director of the CatholicPsych Institute, and author of The Mindful Catholic: Finding God One Moment at a Time


The best of contemporary spiritual and psychological wisdom, this accessible and powerfully experiential book will heal not only you, but your relationships as well. If I had one gift to bequeath my children, it would be to reclaim regret.

—Denise DeSesa-Smith, PhD, Licensed Psychologist


A beautiful, inspirational guide with universal appeal, teaching us how to live with and accept our regrets, and then move on, feeling our burdens have been lifted . . .

—Fred Silverstone, Psychotherapist and Licensed Mental Health Counselor


In Reclaim Regret, Sr. Kathryn weaves Scripture, regrets, and prayer into heart-transforming experiences, using an authentic, clear, and compassionate style of writing. My journey of repentance, transformation, and living a new life in Christ has been supported and enhanced one hundredfold.
