Healing in the Sacraments

"Hardly had I reached the age of discretion when I began to offend You. But You, who had loved me first, had already prepared a remedy for my faults in the Sacraments!"
-- Venerable Conchita

Just like the wounds of the Israelite were healed by the Good Samaritan's oil and wine, we are also healed with oil at our Baptism and Confirmation and wine at Mass. Very often myself, and I imagine many others, forget how wonderful that healing is. God became man and establshed Sacraments to heal us body and soul.
