People who suffer from depression

People who suffer from depression Tweeting with GOD

The Pope's prayer intention (November 2021)

We pray that people who suffer from depression or burn‐out will find support and a light that opens them up to life.

You are not alone!

At times it all can seem too much. Then, more than ever, do we need to be reminded that there is always hope! We all bear responsibility for each other in this sense, to remind each other how Jesus continues to tell us in Scripture: 'Do not worry! Do not be afraid! I am with you!' Even when everything around you is dark, he wants to be your light. If you let him into your life, there is always a shimmer of hope, and you never walk in complete darkness. That may seem easier said than done.
You may have many questions about this: the Tweeting with GOD app can help you find answers.
