Souls may have lived on earth as human beings many times in order to mature according to God´s will.
People can attain spiritual strength by doing good and loving others. They can take this strength with them to the world beyond. With the sacrament of spiritual healing, Joseph Weißenberg reintroduced healing by the laying on of hands. He said: Sickness is spirit, spirit embodied in the flesh.
