"I will personally cherish this work, because I believe I will be able to use it to help others manage the ugly ogre of scrupulosity in their lives. If and when they do, they will discover something of that peace 'which surpasses all understanding.'"
—John Cardinal O'Connor, Archbishop of New York

"To those who wonder why he wrote this book, William Van Ornum might echo Pope John XXIII when he was asked why he convened Vatican Council II: 'To make the human sojourn on earth less sad.' This book will surely do that for countless men and women who have suffered not only the special pains of depression and religious scrupulosity but at times from the treatments prescribed for them. This is a very great practical handbook for this specific syndrome but, because of its tone of profound human understanding, it is something more, a book whose gentle and seasoned wisdom will make anybody who reads it feel better and more courageous about facing the challenges of life."
—Eugene Kennedy, co-author of 'On Becoming a Counselor'

"God love you, Mr. Van Ornum, for your sincere desire to help people who are troubled in this way. I will pray that your book brings light and peace to many."
—Mother Teresa, M.C., Calcutta, India
