About this item

In The Catholic Guide to Loneliness, Dr. Kevin Vost — prolific author, lecturer, and veteran Catholic psychologist — offers a comprehensive guide to loneliness affording men and women the deepest possible answers to the pain of loneliness.

Rooted in ancient philosophical and Biblical wisdom, and buttressed by modern theory and research, these pages bring you to an understanding of the root causes of loneliness and teach you remedies — secular and religious.

The Catholic Guide to Loneliness includes scores of lessons about loneliness from solitary monks, modern psychologists, saints like Thomas More and Thomas Aquinas, and Christ Himself.

This resource does not promise a universal cure to the pain of loneliness. It does, however, provide the wisdom — old and new — to unveil how our loneliness may be aggravated by our sins and shortcomings, and how if our loneliness is indeed unavoidable, we may bear it gracefully, indeed, even joyfully and with much fruit for the salvation of neighbor and ourselves.

"A brilliant, timely, practical work on a universal human subject! Through the author’s expertise coupled with judicious scientific and theological resources, the reader is inspired to evaluate pre-conceived notions about loneliness to arrive at a new healthy perspective. I will be gifting this book to family, clergy, medical professionals and laity with whom I serve in the Church’s ministry of healing, deliverance and exorcism. Dr. Vost’s opus is a dynamic contribution to alleviating the epidemic of loneliness. "

Thank you
"Catholic Guide to Loneliness" is an easy-to-read, easy-to-follow guide that helps and inspires its reader to not only evaluate their past notions about loneliness, but to begin forming a new perspective. It definitely changed my way of viewing loneliness, how to move past it, and during the times when moving past it isn’t an option, to properly deal with it. This book will be a great help and inspiration for those dealing with loneliness. And if they allow it, it just may have a serious, positive impact on their life.

Catholic guide to loneliness
I liked this book because it was an interesting read that brought up good points that made me think. It also more me aware of the loneliness Christ suffered through His Passion and Crucifixion that I never even thought of.

This book offers practical solutions and solid Catholic teaching on the subject of loneliness.
I was excited to read “the Catholic Guide to Loneliness,” since an elderly family member is suffering from this malady right now. I found many solutions that I will share with her, but also found applicable passages for myself and other family members.

Excellent resource!
I have known so many people in my life who have suffered from loneliness, some were aware of it, and some not. This is a book I wish I had access to 30 years ago when a friend committed suicide. I do not think the book in and of itself is the answer but it can be a tool for the person themselves, or friends and family to help understand and support those who suffer from loneliness. This book should be in every parish office!
