When St Anthony Claret's declining health began to cause serious concern, two physicians were called in for advice. Noticing this, the Saint realized the gravity of his illness and said,
"I understand; but first let us think about the soul,
and then the body."
And he wanted to receive the Sacrament at once. After that was done, he sent for the two physicians and told them, "Now do what you want to do."
