“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord”.James 5:14
The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is for those who are dying, as well as those who are gravely ill or about to undergo a serious surgical procedure. This sacrament offers prayers for recovery and raises up and strengthens the soul of the sick person.
