Spiritual medicine

What is spiritual medicine?

Spiritual medicine is “to provide the soul with wings, to rescue it from the world and give it to God, and to watch over that which is in His image, if it remains; to take it by the hand, if it is in danger of being lost; or restore it, if it has been ruined; to make Christ dwell in the heart by the Spirit; and, above all, to deify and bestow heavenly bliss upon one who belongs to the heavenly order” (Gregory the Theologian).
