Anointing of the Sick

What is Anointing of the Sick?

“The Anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last Sacraments one will receive. A Sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace. It is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that the special grace of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects:
  • The uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, for his own good and that of the whole Church;

  • The strengthening, peace, and courage to endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of illness or old age;

  • The forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to obtain it through the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation;

  • The restoration of health, or preparation for passing over to eternal life.
