Just saw this post. I was raised catholic. I appreciate input from others as to what has helped them. I have found many avenues of help within different cultures, and among people who have different ways of practicing their faith. There are many paths to healing. In my own personal opinion and 50 years of experience, I believe each individual is unique. This is not a "one size fits all" universe. I, speaking for myself only, do not believe in instant healing. However, I fully respect those who think differently than I do.
