[click link(s) below, as applicable]
From a medical
perspective, it is recommended to consult good doctor(s) concerning illness, as
applicable. It is also recommended (as applicable) to receive
Anointing of the Sick/Extreme Unction. From a spiritual perspective, it may
be useful to recall that illness can be profitable to the soul. As St.
"In the same
way that a powerful medicine cures an illness, so illness itself is a medicine
to cure passion. And there is much profit of soul in bearing illness quietly and
giving thanks to God." (St. Syncletice)
