Central in this chapter is the question of what is the task of chaplains concerning moral issues, related to violence that their clients have inflicted, undergone, or both. The focus is on chaplaincy in the contexts of penitentiaries and the military, in order to understand how chaplains can and do respond to existential issues, related to violence. Starting from a feminist philosophical perspective on morality as consisting of embodied, relational practices, a notion of moral recovery is developed that highlights the spiritual dimension of morality, and that elucidates the task of chaplains when responding to moral damage that clients have experienced or inflicted.
