Daily Quote

The more I think about this quote, from Thomas Moore's Soulmates, the more I completely agree with what Moore says, about the true way to help people:

We may think that "it's only right and proper" that a person change her ways and that her soul be something other than what it is, but this kind of thinking moves us away from the person's own nature. Sometimes it appears that there is more moralism in the field of psychology than there is in religion.

As I recall, something like this was brought up somewhere in the Screwtape Letters. Something about making sure the 'patient' prayed only for his mother's soul, and didn't give a thought to her rheumatism.

I had forgotten that. Excellent thought.
