About Anointing of the Sick

Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, and is often received when death may be imminent. The effects of the sacrament include a special grace of healing and comfort to the Christian suffering the infirmities and the forgiveness of the person's sins.
