Anointing of the Sick

 

WebAnointingoftheSick

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament that is usually administered in the case of severe illness or to someone who is close to death.  The sacrament confers a special grace which unites the sick person more intimately to the Passion of Christ.  It can bring peace, comfort, courage and forgiveness of sins if the person is unable due to the nature of the illness to make a confession.  A priest is the only person who can confer this sacrament.
