"Visit our infirmities"


Our infirmities don't necessarily want to be visited.

Whenever we pray that phrase, I remember how once, one my of children (at about age 5) ran from the house and climbed a small tree in order to escape my "visiting his infirmity" (a cut on his knee) with antisceptic solution.

However, once he was in the tree, his knee was right at hand level for me, so it was even easier for me to "visit his infirmity" than it had been before he'd tried to escape!
