Anointing of the Sick

The Anointing of the Sick is the Sacrament by which sick persons, through anointing with oil and the prayer of the priest, receive grace for the salvation of their souls and possible bodily healing.

Anointing is important because it strengthens our souls and bodies at the onset of serious illness either to heal us or to help us to die in the state of grace.

The proper time to receive Anointing is when a person begins to be seriously ill and in danger of death from sickness or old age.
