LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Reference to 'therapeau' questioned


In the July 9 issue of the Union-Bulletin, an article by Mary Kay Pinnick stated that the Latin word "therapeau" means God's work.

I have yet to find such a word. The Latin word therapeuticus refers to giving of some sort of medical aid to another person, with no reference to God's work, neither in Greek, French or in the German therapeutik (a different language group).
