The Catholic Guide to Loneliness: How Science and Faith Can Help Us Understand It, Growth From It, and Conquer It
In The Catholic Guide to Loneliness, Dr. Kevin Vost— prolific author, lecturer, and veteran Catholic psychologist— offers a comprehensive guide to loneliness affording men and women the deepest possible answers to the pain of loneliness.
Rooted in ancient philosophical and Biblical wisdom, and buttressed by modern theory and research, these pages bring you to an understanding of the root causes of loneliness and teach you remedies— secular and religious.
The Catholic Guide to Loneliness includes scores of lessons about loneliness from solitary monks, modern psychologists, saints like Thomas More and Thomas Aquinas, and Christ Himself.
This resource does not promise a universal cure to the pain of loneliness. It does, however, provide the wisdom— old and new— to unveil how our loneliness may be aggravated by our sins and shortcomings, and how if our loneliness is indeed unavoidable, we may bear it gracefully, indeed, even joyfully and with much fruit for the salvation of neighbour and ourselves.
