Catholic Teaching on the Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of spiritual and sometimes physical healing in which the sick and dying are blessed with holy oil and prayed over. During His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ often healed the sick, but His healings also involved spiritual, emotional, and psychological components. The Anointing of the Sick seeks to bring healing in whatever way the Lord wills for a particular person. Since the Lord desires above all that everyone be able to spend eternity with Him in heaven, Anointing of the Sick especially exists to heal spiritual wounds and provide grace to the soul of those in great spiritual need.
