A Pastoral Approach to the Crisis of Addiction

And the feelings of isolation, despair, guilt, and shame that a person feels in the midst of their addiction are really part of their spiritual condition and require spiritual healing. My hope is that we can look at those suffering and see our own suffering in them, and the face of Christ in them as well. Perhaps by seeing our own suffering, we will begin to change hearts and dispel the myth of the other.
