Hear me, you earthly men, who in your sins bring forth drunken thoughts. I have found a Physician. He dwells in heaven, and distributes His healing on earth. He alone can heal my pain who Himself has none. He alone who knows what is hidden, can take away the grief of my heart, the fear of my soul: Jesus Christ. Christ is grace, Christ is life, Christ is resurrection. Amen.

St. Ambrose, from the conclusion of a homily on Matt 9:1-8
