The Catholic sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, also known as the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick and Dying, is a expression of God's love and mercy for those who are suffering from physical or emotional illness. This sacrament brings comfort, healing, and strength to individuals facing health challenges and is administered by a priest through the anointing with holy oil and the power of prayer. Anointing of the Sick not only addresses the physical aspects of illness but also offers spiritual consolation, forgiveness of sins, and an invitation to unite one's suffering with the passion of Christ. It is a powerful sacrament that reminds us of God's presence and care during times of illness and provides hope, peace, and the grace to endure in the face of adversity.

“Faith is the channel through which the anointing flows.”
