Rick Warren Continues on the Road To Rome

NEW YORK - One of America’s leading evangelicals believes a new pastoral letter on mental health by California’s Catholic bishops serves as a “watershed moment, and a new standard for mental health ministries around the world.”
On Wednesday, the California Catholic Conference released “Hope and Healing,” a pastoral letter calling for an end to the stigma around mental illness and greater collaboration between science and medical professionals and people of faith.
According to Pastor Rick Warren, founder and pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, the document will be used “not simply by Catholics and Christians in California, but also by non-believers.”
In an interview with Crux, Warren praised the document as being “very well-written,” noting that it’s “both pastoral and scientific.”
Warren is quoted in the letter calling for greater recognition that mental illness is not the result of a lack of faith in God.
