ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Picture 1

This is usually the last sacrament a Christian can have. The anointing of the sick is practiced for those who are in physical, spiritual or emotional pain. A priest anoints the body with Holy oil.

 

The anointing of the sick is normally given to a person in hospital or in their bed at home. In the anointing of the sick a person is forgiven for their sins so that they can be at peace.

 

The Bible Says
"Is any one of you sick? He should call for the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord."
James 5:14
