Anointing of the Sick

 

"Is there anyone sick among you? One should ask for the anointing of the church. They in turn are to pray over them, anointing them with the oil in the Name of the Lord," - James 1

In this sacrament a priest anoints the sick with blessed oil to give strength, hope and healing. A new illness, fragileness or a worsening of health enables a person to receive this beautiful sacrament.

The sick person or a caregiver can request individual anointing. If you know of someone who is preparing for surgery, is suffering from a serious illness, or fragile, encourage them to celebrate the Sacrament of Healing.
