Medical theology ..

The discussions one has with patients as a hospital chaplain are usually interesting and, occasionally, very interesting. One meets people from all walks of life. Some are highly educated professional people and some are salt-of-the-earth blue collar workers. Sometimes, however, under the influence of medication and the particular treatment being undergone, a patient's learning can desert him as I discovered recently when I was told by a man after his prostate operation that the Pope rarely speaks 'ex catheter'.
