Healing is central to the gospel: healing the relationship between God and humankind is the very essence of Christ's work in his life, death, and resurrection.
During his ministry, Jesus healed lepers, blind men, the lame, a haemorrhaging woman, the demon-possessed, and even raised the dead. Jesus involved his disciples in the work of healing; the book of Acts contains accounts of healing by Christ's followers, and the epistles of Paul discuss healing as a gift of the Spirit.
Healing is a sign of God's love, compassion, and care. While a holistic, integrated view of health emerges in medicine, the Church is also rediscovering its ministry of healing.
Healing is not just about recovering from illness: wholeness and peace are gifts from God which He offers to everyone.
