I have just finished reading your book “Recovering from Depression” I cannot thank you enough. I am currently on my journey of recovery from depression. I am on medication and having counselling which is helping greatly but your book has certainly shone another light on things from me. I could really identify with so much of what you were saying and the experiences of Sandra’s life. Thank you so much for helping me on my journey. I am sure your book will continue to be part of my armour in dealing with this illness.

I am using your intercessions for Maundy Thursday as a basis to be used in Tenerife. So simple and inspiring. Thank you.

Reflection on Lent 5A. I am preparing two separate homilies for this weekend. Cycle A is for the mass attended by the Catechumens to be Baptized at the Easter Vigil. Cycle B s for the other masses. I really appreciate your straightforward style and insight. I fully plan on plagiarizing liberally since it matches up thematically with what I wanted to say.
You are now bookmarked for future reference.

Thank you! Like some of the others I found your website by chance while looking for inspiration as I am to lead the intercessions on Sunday and find it difficult to put into words what I would like to say, and your words have helped me.

I had a similar experience to yours in Bethlehem when I visited the
area. I was with a small group of university chaplains so met local people.
I stumbled across your site via Google and have had a look round most inspiring! Thanks.

I have stumbled across this site today and I just want to say thank
you. It was exactly what I needed at this point in my ministry, to
help others and to help myself. I visited a friend in Devon last year
and stayed for 10 days. I thought I visited just about every church in Devon & Somerset but I was very much mistaken. There were so many more. Beautiful part of the world!

I have downloaded the Sermon for Proper 23 Year B – to be used October 14, 2012 for a lay service.  Your message, I think, will be a good fit with the service being planned.  It is quite readable (for lay readers to deliver.)  Thank you so much.

Dear Katharine, I just had to write and thank you for your intercessions for saints from which I have drawn inspiration for my own intercessions for our Eucharist for St James tomorrow.

I will bookmark your website for future reference, thank you very much.

Director of University Ministry

Saint Leo Florida

I want to express my great appreciation for the deeply spiritual and moving reflection.  As I prepare to preach in parishes and in the university part of my preparation following my own reading, reflection and praying of the scriptures is to seek out insight from other preachers. This is my first time coming across Katharine’s website. Although our scriptures are different that we will be using, the insights are most helpful.

Dear Katharine, I just wanted to thank you so much for your words about St. Barnabas. I am regularly helping to lead services of the word (e.g. Matins tomorrow) and was feeling rather stressed about having to prepare a talk on St. Barnabas.I suddenly thought of ‘Googling’ sermon about St. Barnabas and your sermon and intercessions came up. It is truly a godsend – thank you so much. Your words are perfect for what I wanted to say and I look forward to using them tomorrow (I will acknowledge where they have come from of course!) Many thanks, and keep up the good work. Your work on depression looks very interesting too. Bless You.

Katharine, I’m preaching tomorrow when we are commemorating the Presentation of Christ. I was stirred and moved by your sermon on this subject (03/02/08) and I would like to share with the congregation at St Kiaran’s – with reference, of course, to you as the author. I will also make a point of directing folk to your website. Kind regards, Frances

Bless you for your honesty and faith. A book which greatly helped me is ‘When I am weak’ by John Holmes an Anglican Priest in Yorkshire.  When we are weak, He is made strong’ Bless you and thank you for your ministry to those who feel they have failed, not so!

It was a breath of fresh air to read your site Katharine. Your understanding of depression and those who don’t really know how to deal with such an illness is honest and inspiring. It can be difficult to deal with the ‘church politics’ from some members, especially for those suffering with depression and wanting to come back to church after some time away. I am glad you addressed this issue. It’s warming to know that others feel the same way.I will make sure I visit here again.

This is an exciting website in the making. You have a compassionate gift of communication through your writing.
The “taster” passages from your latest book Angels in the Wilderness are beautifully and sensitively written. I look forward to reading the book when it is published. May God use you through your writing to encourage others.

Congratulations Katharine on your new website, which I hope will be a wonderful resource to many, and a showcase for all your outstanding and insightful writing. I noticed, incidentally, that you asked for a picture of the cats on the site, but not one of your husband. Are you trying to tell me something?

Love from Adrian.
