Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is received by those who are ill or suffering.  By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ.  The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage. While it is possible that the sacrament could bring physical healing, Anointing of the Sick is primarily about the healing of hope and of the spirit.
