Supporting the Physically & Emotionally Challenged

Here’s an important word in the Catholic lexicon: holistic. When looking at the miracle, the work of art that we call the human person, we take in the whole: body, mind, and soul. This is essential in our works of education; this is necessary in our efforts in health care and charity.

Jesus did this. Remember when He was asked to heal the body of the paralytic? He did, but only after tending as well to the soul, as He forgave the sick man’s sins.
