 Our Description

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. In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Like all the sacraments, holy anointing was instituted by Jesus Christ during his earthly ministry. The Catechism explains, "This sacred anointing of the sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper sacrament of the New Testament. It is alluded to indeed by Mark, but is recommended to the faithful and promulgated by James the apostle and brother of the Lord" (CCC 1511; Mark 6:13; Jas. 5:14-15).

This tract gives the reader a good primer on this Sacrament through the use of Scripture and citations from the Fathers of the Church and the Catechism.
