Who Is The Sacrament of the Sick For?
Anointing of the Sick is meant for baptized Catholics of all ages who seek the recovery of physical, mental, and spiritual health including:
What is the Effect of the Sacrament?
- Those who are seriously impaired due to sickness, injury, or old age;
- Those who are alienated from God and community because of physical or emotional disorders;
- Those who have been wounded by evil;
- Those who will be undergoing surgery.
The Sacrament offers the sick person strength, peace, and courage to endure with grace the sufferings of illness, and the restoration of health according to God’s will.
Through their example of grace in suffering, those who are sick serve as models of discipleship to the rest of the faith community. It is Christ who is suffering in and through the sick who, in turn, are comforted by the community.
