The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing. It reaches out to those who are sick and draws them into the heart of the Church. It is also given to those who are about to die.
Sickness, pain, and death were not written into God's original plan for mankind. Part of Jesus' ministry was to heal the sick, and he went about curing those who were ill or disabled. Jesus came to announce that the Kingdom of God was now a reality here on earth. One of the signs of this reality was that the sick were healed and the dead raised up, because suffering and death can have no place in the Kingdom of God.
The Church has always had a special mission to the sick, from visiting a sick person at home, giving communion to those who are housebound, to building hospitals and clinics. Human beings are made body and soul--the physical side of human life is as much the Church's concern as the spiritual side, and those who are sick and in pain are especially in need of comfort and healing.
The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is administered by a priest or bishop. It begins with a short rite of penance followed by a reading. Then in silence the priest lays his hands on the sick person and anoints that person's forehead and palms with oil, saying these words:
Through this holy anointing, may the Lord, in His love and mercy, help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. Amen. May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up. Amen.
