Ministry of Consoling

Every parish should begin training people to actively engage in a ministry of consoling others.

“The person charged with the task of consoling, in fact, requires no less skill than surgeons who lance sores.”    (St. John Chrysostom, Commentaries on the Sages Vol. 1: Commentary on Job, p 72)
