AFCC's Virtual Community... Our Stories, Tales, and Fables for the Wounded Healer

Who is the wounded healer?... ...Those who want to fix the ills of man but recognize their own brokenness. This is a place to come, to rest, to share the journey of Christ’s healers. Let this be a kind of interactive oasis for the Catholic Chiropractic soul.

is a Chiropractor and Clinical Nutritionist in Massapequa Long Island. His encounter with God through his meeting with Mother Teresa early in his career set the tone for the kind of practice he would pursue. While blessing his hands she requested that each person he layed his hands on would be seen by him as if they were Christ. This has been a great challenge to say the least!; however as a result he attempts to bring that spirit to ordinary everyday folks while treating their pains and their illnesses.

Bah Hum Bug! by Doc Kulik


Ebenezer was visited by 3 spirits
not because he was disgusted by consumerism
but because he lacked
compassion, empathy, and good will.

I have been listening to good spiritual patients
for 3-4 weeks now groan in so many words
" Bah hum bug"

After talking to them
I realize why the world might call them scrooge

Here is what they say

The same people
who tell you that Christmas
is so important only 2-3 months earlier
are nowhere to be found the day after Christmas.
The lights are gone,
the music is over.
You would think they know
there are 12 days in Christmas
because they played that song 100 times
while we were shopping!

They tell us what gifts are appropriate
and how much we should spend regardless
of our finances.
We expect our Children
to be taught generosity
when all they are taught is to receive.
We are asked
"are you ready for Christmas?"
"What does that mean?
Does it mean that the world
is throwing the largest party of the year
and everyone is expected to come
except the birthday boy?

Lets explore the wonderful lessons
Charles Dickens demonstrated for us.

There were 3 groups of people
Scrooge was generous to after
his "conversion"

First come the 2 men
who were collecting for the destitute.
In a sense he was appeasing
the ghost of Christmas past
when He told them
that there were a great many
"back payments included"

He appeased the
ghost of Christmas future
by providing a secure financial future
for Bob Cratchet, Tiny Tim and family.
If you notice great monetary generosity
was placed where it belongs....
....on the financially needy.

However when Scrooge goes to Fred's house,
he did not bring a gift that we could see.
In fact He takes something from Fred;
his hospitality.
Yet when Scrooge accepts this gift
he gives even a greater gift back to his nephew.
Simply put,
Ebenezer was "present" to Fred.
They shared something much greater
than gold or silver.
This appeases the ghost of Christmas present.
Perhaps it's time that we stop
all the insanity
at this time of year and say to the world
"Bah Hum Bug!" .

Dr Kevin Kulik practices on Long Island NY.

It is his hope and prayer to inspire the Catholic to "Be Christ" by his stories.

very inspirational, especially at a time when the frenzied pace of the days before Christmas start to blur the real meaning of the Day and season.

Kev:
Thank you for setting us this environment for which to share our experiences. An humbling profession it is, this human physicianship. Without the foundation of faith, our effectiveness, our confidence could not be sincere.

Christmas All Year ‘Round

(The eternal Gift That Keeps Giving)


During the Christmas season each year

i hasten to find the perfect gift

Something that captures a special moment

Something that is useful

Something that will be remembered



A mindless gift is counterfeit

An expensive gift, distracting

The perfect gift “says” something

Something deep within me

Something self-giving



To bring Christmas to all

Through all the seasons of the year

The Spirit of Christmas

The Spirit of Giving

Of self-giving



The gift of chiropractic

A caring gift

Something that makes the human whole, a special moment

Something that is needed

Something for which to be remembered



Mindless chiropractic is counterfeit

The shekels distract us from the gift

Does my gift “say” something?

Is my gift more profound than words?

A gift from deep within?



To bring chiropractic to all

Through all the seasons of life

The Spirit of chiropractic

The Spirit of Giving

Of self-giving







The Gift of the Manger

The Perfect Gift of Christmas

A Most Special Moment

Something most needed

A Gift that has been remembered



What is my gift?

Is it at home? At the office?

Does it create a special moment?

Is my gift useful?

Do I give it all year ‘round?



The Gift of the Calvary

The Gift of Love

The Perfect Gift

The Gift of Self-Giving

Christmas all year ‘round
