Wound and trauma always have a double meaning. On the one hand, they indicate pain. On the other hand, they manifest loving captivity: "my heart is wounded by love"...
Meaning hurts, meaning heals!
This book contains many crossroads. There meet Theology, Psychology and Psychoanalysis, Science, Pastoral Care, Worship, that is, spaces that welcome both the intellect and the heart. And in front of us is the bet of their unity.
Theory and Practice must hold hands in order to heal "the great trauma, man". We do Theology because we are wounded. We practice Pastoral care because we are sick. And through their humble ministry our pain is healed. Sometimes because we gained access to redemptive meanings. Sometimes because our brother himself becomes the meaning...
We filled in words without a counterpoint. Unfortunately, many times theological reflection and pastoral practices are carried out unconsciously! We don't suspect that beneath the words and concepts are scaring the lives of others. Wounded for meaning, wounded for meaning...
The subtitle could equally be borrowed from Emily Dickinson:

Surgeons beware
when they take the scalpel!
Beneath their fine incisions
the Flame is falling - the Life!
