Keep clear of psychiatrists unless you know that they are also Christians. Otherwise they start with the assumption that your religion is an illusion and try to ‘cure’ it: and this assumption they make not as professional psychologists but as amateur philosophers.

─C.S. Lewis, in a letter to Mrs. Frank L. Jones, in The Collected Letters of C.S. Lews, vol. 2, Books, Broadcasts, and the War, 1931-1949, 765.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
