Anointing of the Sick

'Is anyone among you sick?  Let him call for the presbyters of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven" (Jas 5:14-15).

The special grace of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects: unity with the Passion of Christ, strength, peace, courage, forgiveness of sins, restoration of health, and preparation for entering eternal life.
