Self help books that are not Catholic take ones eyes off of Christ and place them onto the self.
There is no mention of Christ in non Catholic books, so I avoid them.
In these books, there is the total exclusion of God.
It is about making yourself your own God, by the focus being that you achieve by doing everything yourself, no need for any help from the Lord.
Its subtle and insidious, this re-working of ones view point onto not praying or seeking the Lord Jesus for answers.
My priest gave me some books to read on the virtues, and directed me to focus on the virtues and to become a virtuous woman.
Focusing on my relation ship with the Lord and the Precious blood of Jesus, the sacraments and adoration will bring healing for any sufferings.
Plus accepting sufferings as necessary for this life as well and offering it up.
People who did evil to me are accountable to God, and my job is to pray for them and their conversion.
That is totally the opposite of what most self help books give to you, so I will trust my priest to know exactly what to do to get more healing.
God bless you all and thanks for your ideas.
