Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing shows the concern that the Lord himself has for the bodily and spiritual welfare of teh sick, as the gospels testify. Thsi sacrament has its beginning in Christ ans is spoken of in the Letter of James. The Church, by the anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests, entrusts those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord. The Church encourages the sick to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passino and Death of Christ.
