Accepting Sickness

Concerning bodily ailments, be obedient to your doctor. Tell him what is wrong with you, briefly, modestly and clearly. When you have said what is necessary, be quiet and let him do the rest. Don’t refuse medicine. Take it in the loving chalice of Jesus with a gentle countenance and with gratitude to those who take care of you.
