Visiting the Sick - Accomplishes a great Thing!
‘Whoever visits the sick takes away one sixtieth of his illness.’ (Nedarim 40a)
If you’ve been sick, you know how lonely it can be.
You have way too much time to feel sorry for yourself and think about how no one cares about you.
And that usually makes you feel worse.
Visiting lightens the burden of that thinking and takes away some of the pain and helps lighten up a life
