A parishioner discloses to you that they've been experienced trauma. Now what?

Does your stomach drop when you think about the following situations?

During Confession or pastoral direction, a parishioner tells you…

*They have an eating disorder.

*They slit their wrists last week, and this is not the first time it’s happened.

*They were molested as a child, and they’ve never told anyone.

*Their fear of eternal damnation debilitates them daily.

*They had an abortion years ago, and they’ve been living in self-hatred ever since.

*They can hardly get out of bed each morning because they are so depressed. It’s been two years since their spouse died.
