Understanding the suffering in our parishes…
More than half of adults in the United States have one or more chronic illnesses, including cancer, autoimmune illness, and diabetes,
and/or live with chronic pain. Approximately 70 percent of adults with chronic illness and pain suffer from mental health issues that spring from the challenges of chronic illness and pain. Many of these adults are members of
our parishes but might not be readily known or visible due to their health challenges and, often, their questions of faith. What can we do to help?
