Transcript Transcript

In the Church we venerate a special class of physician-saints called the Holy Unmercenaries. Ss. Barsanuphius and John tell us what all healers should remember:

While reading medical books or asking someone about them, do not forget that without God no one receives healing. And thus, he who devotes himself to the medical art should give himself over to the Name of God, and God will grant him help. The medical art does not hinder a man from being pious; but make use of it like a handiwork for the benefit of the brethren. Whatever you do, do with the fear of God, and you will be preserved by the prayers of the Saints. Amen.
