FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "The approach in today's hospitals is on 'fixing' people rather than 'healing' them in the traditional sense."  Fr. McCormick SJ
QUOTE II:  "Healing is a natural process and is within the power of everyone.  Curing, which is what doctors are called upon to do, usually consists of an external treatment; medication or surgery is used to mask or eliminate sumptoms."  Christiane Northrup

Re: the two quotes about healing: You might want to read a wonderful book called 'God's Hotel' by Victoria Sweet. It's about slow healing, caring for body and spirit, and draws on Hildegard of Bingen --all from a modern doctor's evolving viewpoint. Fascinating in a bittersweet sort of way, as this sort of health CARE may soon be obsolete.

Re: On why so many seminarians come from so few parishes... Our parish has been one of those, and while there are many factors, one thing that has been done for over 40 years is a prayer for vocations at every Sunday Mass, right after the Gospel and before the homily. the priest says, "Please kneel for the prayer for vocations..."

Priest: Let us ask God to grant worthy priests, deacons and religious to His Holy Church.

People: Oh God, we earnestly beseech Thee to bless this Archdiocese with many priests, deacons, brothers and sisters, who will love Thee with their whole strength and gladly spend their entire lives to serve Thy Church and make Thee known and loved.

Priest: Bless our families, bless our children.

People: Choose from our homes those who are needed for Thy work.

Priest: Oh Mary, Queen of the Clergy,

People: Pray for us, pray for our priests and religious. Obtain for us many more.
