      Holy Family

      What is intergenerational healing?

      We all understand the concept of a material inheritance. After people die, they often leave money, property, and possessions to members of their family.

      We also are aware of a physical inheritance. Doctors always ask for the family history of a new patient. We can inherit good health and adverse conditions.

      There is also a spiritual inheritance. We can thank God and our family for the benefit from our virtuous ancestors going back a thousand generations (see Sir 44:10-12). We are also adversely affected by the sins of parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents and by the sins of the ancestors who adversely affected them, with consequences that may extend to what is inherited materially, emotionally, and physically.

      Intergenerational healing is, for the Christian, an opportunity to recognize and bring healing to family influences from the past, with implications for the future. Intergenerational healing suggests the possibility that negative acts and deeds of our ancestors can somehow enter our 'bloodstream' and take a toll on future generations. Transforming the connection with these troublesome roots is what intergenerational healing is all about. It's an exciting, fascinating area of the healing ministry.

      Scripture references
      Included here are just a few brief Scripture passages that speak of the transmission of effects of parental sins onto their children:

      "Our fathers sinned and are no more, and we bear their punishment" (Lamentations 5:7). The fathers eat sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge"(Ezekiel 18:2).

      "For I, the Lord, your God, am a jealous God, inflicting punishment for their fathers' wickedness on the children of those who hate Me, down to the third and fourth generation. . ." (Exodus 20:5).

      As well, included here are Scripture references to holy influences of parents:

      " . . .but bestowing mercy down to the thousandth generation, on the children of those who love Me and keep My commandments" (Exodus 20:5). "Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in His commands. His children will be mighty in the land; each generation of the upright will be blessed. . ." (Psalm 112:1-2).
