Healing and Anointing
The Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament given to seriously ill Christians. The special grace of this act is a healing that offers wholeness and peace to the ailing person. The sacrament consists of the anointing of the forehead and hands of the person with blessed oil, with the priest saying, "Through this holy anointing may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up."
