Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good only for light depression sufferers  Feb 25, 2008
I have been suffering from depression some 20+ years and so when I saw this book I thought how wonderful it would be to combine spirituality with other tools to help one overcome depression.

As I read the book I was very disappointed in that the exercises in the book and meditations was all there was. I wish I could have given this book a better rating but I see the target audience for this book being those who suffer with temporary light depression due to losses such as death or a break-up.
 
Amazingly GREAT!  Jun 22, 2006
My mother found this book and after 20 years of dealing with MY depression, she finally understands. This book was a miracle for me. It is great for the person suffering from depression because it gives a great "plan of action." However, it is SUPERB for those not depressed who are around the depressed person.

The author is sincere and insightful. You can't help, but like her. I also like the fact that she does not just say: Going To Catholic Mass is the only answer. She understands that depression is only treated through ATTEMPTS and FAILURES at "healing" the mind, body, and spirit.
 
Return to the Church and beat depression and medication   Jul 26, 2004

Excellent book by a nun who was bipolar. She gives a three step approach to combating depression:

1.) Return to the Church: At least continual Mass, Confession, and Eucharist, see a priest, and proper prayer - this will strengthen your soul;

2.) Go to regular therapy

3.) Medication, if still necessary.

I have followed her guidelines and have made the most improvement in many years compared to solely medicine regimes.

Short, easy to read, and enlightening. If you consider yourself a Catholic/Christian and have been away from the Church, not practicing your religion, and have had problems with depression/bipolar - this book will give you a whole new prospective and approach to combating this horrible condition they call depression.
 
Excellent "how-to" for dealing with depression!  Mar 8, 2004
This is an excellent book for those who consider themselves to have a strong faith (or used to) but are currently struggling with depression. One thing she recommends is to find a spiritual guide, someone to help discern between the depression and Sin, as well as to help relearning to trust God and believe in God's faithfulness. And yes she gives advice on how to identify such a person.

You don't need to be Catholic to understand this book, only to have a depression and a faith that could use some support during these struggles.

I ordered it directly from http://www.pauline.org/store and received it within a week at my house.
