Health in the Christian perspective means wholeness — not only physical and emotional, but also spiritual and social. Health has to do with more than strictly medical concerns. The restoration of health and the maintenance of good health are not solely the responsibility of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. We bear a responsibility in this regard, both as individuals and as members of large social and religious institutions.  (National Conference of Catholic Bishops, Health and Health Care {1981} paragraph 14)
