In this video Fr. Robert Gahl talks about “Psycology and Faith”
Is faith healthy for the mind? Is religion a fairy tale from which to be liberated or a pathology from which to heal? In the past, psychology and psychiatry tended to be against religion. But in recent decades, there has been a fascinating change of attitude and of perspective. Faith today appears more like a factor of happiness and mental health than a disease.
