What is your opinion on those who reject scientific medicine in favor of prayer to heal their illnesses. I believe followers are called Christian Scientists. I mean no offense, I'm just curious about a Catholic standpoint on the issue

Hello!

Prayer is powerful, but this is not a good idea. The Church accepts scientific discovery, especially when it can be used to save lives. St. Gianna Beretta Molla, one of my favorite saints, was a physician. Here is a list of more physician saints in the Church. Miraculous healings do happen, but God also blessed scientists and physicians with their abilities, so we should take advantage of the medicine available.

When Jesus fed the thousands (Matthew 14:13-21), He asked them for the loaves and the fish first (He could have produced these out of nothing). We do our best and God does the rest according to His will.

I hope that I helped! God bless you!
