HOPE AND HEALING

May 14, 2018

 

On May 1st, the California Bishops published a pastoral letter called Hope and Healing. It is about Mental Health.

They say: “Mental illness is neither a moral failure nor a character defect. To suffer from a psychiatric disorder is not a sign of insufficient faith or weakness of will. Christian faith and religious practice do not immunize a person against mental illness.”

“It is time now to build bridges between science and religion, health care and pastoral care Clergy and health care professionals, families and mental health advocates should work together to encourage a “both-and,” rather than “either-or” approach to psychological and spiritual healing. We welcome and encourage advances in science and medicine.”
