Holy Oils for Sacrament of the Sick Image on Website.jpg

Sacrament of the Sick

‘Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.’ (James 5:14)‍ As Jesus showed so much compassion for the sick in his lifetime, so too the Church cares for the sick and ministers to them today. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be received by any Catholic whose health is in a critical state. What this looks like is someone anointing the forehead and hands of the sick person with holy oils and praying with them.

‘The Anointing of the Sick imparts consolation, peace, and strength and unites the sick person, in his precarious situation and his sufferings, with Christ in a profound way.’ YouCat Question 245
