Anointing of the Sick
The Anointing of the Sick is one of the seven Sacraments in Catholic tradition. It is administered by a priest who uses oil to anoint and lay hands on the recipient, while praying to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. 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. It conveys several graces and imparts gifts of strengthening in the Holy Spirit against anxiety, discouragement, and temptation, and conveys peace and fortitude.
