Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the Church, and they should pray over him, anointing him with oil in the Name of the Lord.— James 5:14
The Catholic Church believes and confesses that among the seven sacraments the Anointing of the Sick is especially intended to strengthen those who are being tried or tested by illness. This sacrament unites our sufferings with the passion of Christ. The Holy Spirit gives us the grace to be at peace and courageous in overcoming difficulties that come with “serious illness or the frailty of old age”.
