“In my name they will cast out demons … they will lay their hands on the sick and they will recover.” (Mk 16: 17 – 18)

This sacrament can be received by any Catholic whose health is in a critical state. This is administered by anointing the forehead and hands with oil and saying particular prayers. The effects of this sacrament are to comfort and strengthen the soul, to remit sin and even to restore health when God sees it to be expedient.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for you are with me.”

Ps 23: 4
