He who visits the sick and those languishing with the disease of earthly vices,
who heals them with the medicine of good doctrine, heals Christ in them.
Even as Christ is healthy in souls that are healthy, he is ailing in souls that are ailing.
But he is also the one who comes to those who have gone down to the world of the dead alive and are doing infernal work that is, they are in prison and under guard of the devil.
As Scripture says, Let them go down to the world of the dead alive.
Coming through his word, he leads them out of that infernal prison and frees them from the guard of the devil.
They give thanks to him, saying, O Lord my God, I cry to you for help,
and you have healed me.
O Lord, you have brought up my soul from the world of the dead.
