In the spirit of our Catholic tradition of hospitality, all are welcome here including those of other faiths, those who can’t decide where to hang their spiritual hat, those who have chosen not to belong to a particular religion, and those who do not believe in God. Catholics are welcome here too, of course. This is a Catholic blog after all. Depression affects everyone.
I try to post two times each week, though personal and professional commitments may occasionally get in the way. The posts will have inspirational reflections or stories of inspirational people, especially if they relate to depressive conditions. Integrating psychology with Catholic spirituality will be a central theme. There will also be book reviews, opinions, and anecdotes. Since I also have an impulsive side, I have a Facebook page: Catholics and Depression. There I share interesting links to depression research, quotes, and sometimes, just pictures. Please “like” my FB page by clicking that little icon on this blog.
Regarding the posting of comments, my only request is that you all refrain from abusive language, selling goods, and proselytizing when posting. We are here to support each other in the face of a global epidemic, depression (leading cause of disability world-wide constitutes a global epidemic).
A quick tutorial: the archives are next to the “search keywords” at the top right of the page, so is the RSS. The list found under the title “Depressed & Catholic” do open to other pages.
