Fr. Padovani had carpal tunnel surgery on his left wrist. It was a quick procedure and he has been doing extremely well. The pain is minimal and he has good mobility. He thanks everyone for their prayers.
As we enter 2023, I wish all of you a new year filled with God's abundant blessings. I have been blessed to continue my counseling ministry as well as to serve several parishes in the Bordentown area. My heart is full of gratitude for all of your prayers and support.
I am currently experiencing some health challenges that require me to modify my schedule for the next couple of months. During this time, I ask for your continued prayers for a swift recovery and restored health to continue to serve our Lord in my ministry.
With deepest gratitude,
Fr. Martin Padovani, SVD

Thank you, Martin. Within this text, I found valuable fuel for personal strength and perspective. I have shared several copies with friends who were going through difficult times with their relationships. A must read. T. Nelson
He has made an impact on our community. He is so on point for what our society needs today. He stresses the significance of Jesus's nature---for us to be fully alive is the greatest gift to God. Michele McMahon
This is an easy-to-read book written by a priest/psychotherapist. Padovani's chapter "Change" is particularly good. I found myself thinking, "Hey, is he talking to me?" many times as I read. Get it---you won't be sorry. PHgil
These are books you read more than once and save for future use and reference. I gave some as gifts to my younger relatives. Benny Legaspe Sr.
Healing Wounded Emotions is awesome! Padovani takes you on a journey through the many emotions we deal with and helps us understand them like never before. Great book!
A great book for anyone alive--chapters like "Anger," "Guilt," "Self-Criticism," "Compassion," all from a therapist who has helped thousands of clients for many, many years! Anne S.
The author has the touch of a poet. Such a good image of what we all want the church to be. He cares as a person for the humanity and the heart of those who look for him. Anthony T. Padovano

These books are a blend of Christ's message and modern psychology.
Everyone will find these books extremely helpful, healing, and insightful in their emotional and spiritual lives as well as their relationships and families.
