Not best format for her message
This probably works better when Sr. Hermes is talking to a live audience or writing one of her (highly reviewed on Amazon) books. Here, she is trying to reach such a broad audience that it feels like she oversimplified the material. The first lecture where she recited the textbook definition of depression was excruciatingly boring. “Yes, yes, I know this already,” I said, trying not to roll my eyes. I started skipping through to new chapters, finally skipping to halfway mark between chapters. That’s how I found her advice to turn the sacrament of reconciliation into an impromptu counseling session (chapter 4). Boundaries! By her own admission, Sr. Hermes is neither a therapist or a theologian, and it shows. Full disclosure: I’m returning this book for a refund.
