Dealing with Sorrow

When someone is sad, I may write to them, hoping to alleviate some of their pain or nudge them into another stage of dealing with their grief. Recently I read what Saint Thomas Aquinas gave as a remedy for sorrow: “Sorrow can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath, and a glass of wine.” As one of the most intelligent saints in Church history, I wouldn’t doubt Thomas Aquinas’ advice. Yet I doubt that I’d pass it on.
