The Church is a Hospital

Christ healing the Leper
Christ referred to Himself as a physician, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.” (Mt. 9:12)–the sick being the sinners. The Church refers to Christ as “the Physician of our souls and bodies.” And in the prayer to the Holy Trinity we say, “Holy One, visit and heal our infirmities.”

Before we seek cure we must know that we are sick. Sometimes a sickness is obvious, but other times it is not. The decision to get well is entirely ours. If we feel we are healthy and refuse to see a physician or therapist of the soul (priest), we are in grave danger. May we all attain spiritual wellness, through the intercessions of the Most Holy Mother of God, the Holy Angels and all the Saints. 

Amen.
