In this video from the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network, Pope Francis recognizes that many people experience mental, emotional, affective, and physical exhaustion. He asks us to strive to be close to those who are exhausted, to those who are desperate, without hope. To not forget that together with the indispensable guidance of a psychologist, which is useful and effective, Jesus' words also help.
The November Pope Video is created with the support of the Association of Catholic Mental Health Ministers, a lay association that assists parishes and dioceses in establishing mental health ministries. The Association supports these ministries as they practice spiritual accompaniment of people experiencing mental illness, as well as their loved ones. Click below to learn more.
