39. I feel bad but am not at all surprised by this.

When I was a child the Church taught that suicide was worse than murder.
Families who had a suicide were shamed into not having a Catholic funeral.
No service, no closure. Just shame.
The Church's treatment of bullying, despair and mental illnesses is right up there with their denial of heliocentricity, or the belief that epilepsy is caused by demonic possession.

They are afraid to admit that in the face of actual knowledge, their Canon can be fallible.
