According to the information department the signed a cooperation agreement was signed by Archbishop Artemy of Petropavlovsk and Kamchatka and chief doctor of the regional hospital Olga Zubkova. The head physician of the hospital supported the Kamchatka bishop reports kam24.ru.
“Man is not only a collection of bones, veins, organs, it is also a living soul. The body is very closely connected with the soul. The doctor is called upon to heal the body, but the priest has the power to heal the soul. Because when the body weakens by illnesses, the soul also weakens. And you support the body, and we support the soul. And it will be easier for our Kamchatka resident to cope with illnesses and sorrows with the help of a priest” ~ said the archbishop.
As a blessing for further works, the head of the diocese presented her with the icon of St. Great Martyr Panteleimon.
“We are glad that you are helping us, of course, the body and soul are inseparable. Therefore, when we heal the body, we must heal the soul” ~ said Olga Zubkova.
