The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick
Jesus came into the world to show God’s love. He often did this in places where we feel especially threatened: in the weakening of our life through sickness. God wants us to become well in body and soul and, therefore, to believe and to acknowledge the coming of God’s kingdom.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is a way in which the Lord comes to us in our frailty and weakness and can be received by any Catholic whose health is in a critical state.
