Did You Know About How To Get The Healing Sacrament

The Sacrament for the Sick’

“Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint [him] with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven” (James 5:13-15). How good it is that this great sacrament exists. Formerly called Extreme Unction because it was the last of four sacraments that use the oil of anointing (Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders are the other three), it is now administered to those who are seriously ill or facing surgery and no longer reserved for a person who is very close to death. Therefore it is possible for a person to receive this anointing more than once in life. Incorporated in this sacrament is the sacrament of reconciliation — therefore it is one of sacraments reserved to the priest. The others are Confirmation (unless it is the Easter Vigil or the priest has special permission from the Bishop), the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and Holy Orders.

Let Us Pray;

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come; and thy will be done here on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses

 as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed

art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb,

 Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,

and at the hour of our death.


Glory be, to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

a world without end. AMEN
