SELF HELP ONLY

All I hear from Christians is "Heal thyself!"

Obviously I had got the priesthood thing all wrong and was wasting my time trying to help people in pain. I should have just told them to get over it.

  1. They say this, Jonathan, because they really have no help to offer, and so are frustrated and irrationally angry at you for needing help. There are no good Christians, I’ve come to realize, just bumbling, stumbling people like myself. Don’t let the bitterness turn you from your own priestly compassion. You’ve told me that you all stay away from me because I say very little any more – now you know why. I don’t know what to say that won’t cause pain.
