      Whatever illness is in relation to a man's body, this is what sins are in relation to the soul. When one who has bodily sickness takes refuge in the doctor of bodies, he reveals his bodily ailments, and receives the necessary and appropriate medicines for a cure. In the same way, one who has sins, i.e. sickness of the soul, ought to go to the doctor of the soul, the spiritual father, and reveal his sins, i.e. the illnesses of his soul. And he will receive from him medicines that are appropriate, necessary and capable of curing illnesses of the soul.

      Elder Philotheos Zervakos, Paternal Counsels Volume 1
