Besides being the third oldest Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of New York, St Mary’s Church is also headquartering Father O’Connor’s Goods of Conscience project:”an apparel line employing local craftspeople and importing wild cotton produced by Mayan Indian weavers who are paid a living wage, that fosters the “cycle of charity”, a process that includes becoming involved in the lives of the poor in a manner that respects and enhances the dignity of all parties involved in the transaction. As O’Connor explains on the Goods of Conscience website, it’s about fulfilling a vision of “a global network of interconnected, interdependent local, self-sustaining businesses—a global social fabric.”

Francesca Franchina, MS Ed talks with Marika Zimmerman and Dr. Ken Fung, MD of Toronto, Canada about his long professional medical and psycho-therapy experience, the recent publication of his book and extensive research regarding Spiritual Depression and The Hidden Factors of Clinical Depression . Dr. Fung, Past President of The International Association of Christian Therapists (ACT) www.ACTheals.org cites non- consideration of the patient first as a spiritual being in treating depression vs. the most common medical physical-psychological treatment utilizing drugs, anti-depressants and long term psychotherapy. Rejection, abandonment, combinations of physical, mental, intellectual/sexual abuse, loss of love, grief, being broken hearted, early loss of spiritual identity/not knowing they are always loved by God are among the numerous causes of debilitating trauma. Trauma can cause depression and other medical conditions, reports Dr. Ken who delineates trauma sources and causes of depression looking and considering the whole person, utilizing research and experience in treating the medical, physical/psychological condition and recognizing and treating the spiritual dimension of each patient to bring them to wholeness.

The unbiased nature of letting the documents speak for themselves is powerful!

Joe and Joseph’s enthusiastic discussion hit several high points such as: integration of our faith with our work, developing our conscience, just wage, finding happiness in business, and church’s role in business and economic theory.

The book is an indispensable tool for business men and women who desire to reach the next level of business and personal satisfaction.
