Lost Souls

It has been pointed out to me that those who struggle with mental illness unmedicated and underserved are lost souls who need our prayers. I think that is very true. There are so many people who are wandering around, either literally or figuratively, being tortured with moods, thoughts and voices, who are not getting the help they need. It is often beyond humanity's ability to help them, especially when they will not accept offers of help.

Thankfully, Jesus came to save souls, especially lost ones. He is the Divine Physician who came to heal the sick. He holds each of them in his Sacred Heart.

Thanks to Cece from the Catholic Answers Forum for suggesting this metaphor.

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
