Anointing the Sick

The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be received by any Catholic whose health is in a critical state" (YouCat, 243; CCC, 1514-1515, 1528-1529).

"The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick imparts consolation, peace, and strength and unites the sick person, in his or her precarious situation and his suffering, with Christ in a profound way. For The Lord experienced our fears and bore our pains in his body. For many people, the Anointing of the Sick brings about physical healing, but if God should decide to call someone home to Himself, He gives him or her in the Anointing of the Sick the strength for all the physical and spiritual battles on his final journey. In any case, the Anointing of the Sick as the effect of forgiving sins" (YouCat, 245; CCC, 1520-1523, 1532).
