“In the life of the body a man is sometimes sick, and unless he takes medicine, he will die: even so in the spiritual life a man is sick on account of sin; wherefore he needs medicine so that he may be restored to health; and this grace is bestowed in the Sacrament of Penance: Who forgiveth all thy iniquities, Who healeth all thy diseases.” (St. Thomas Aquinas, Doctor of the Church)
