Our expert says:
He does indeed sound depressed. COuld you discuss your concerns with him, gently ? Could you discuss them with his family ? He needs to be gently persuaded to see a good local psychiarist for a proper assessment, and to frankly tell the doctor about what is troubling him, and seek the help he needs.
You mention him weeping while praying - is there someone at his church / temple / mosque with whom he may have discussed what's troubnling him, or with whom he might agree to discuss this ?
