Each booklet in the Growing Faith Project
provides a complete treatment of Catholic teachings on its topic. The material is presented in plain English. Es disponible en español también. It is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and has an Imprimatur.
This booklet summarizes articles 1499 thru 1532 of The Catechism of the Catholic Church and the main points include:
► Each time a Christian falls seriously ill, he or she may receive the Anointing of the Sick, and also when, after he or she has received it, the illness worsens.
► The celebration of the Anointing of the Sick consists essentially in the anointing of the forehead and hands of the sick person (in the Roman tradition) or of other parts of the body (in the Eastern tradition), the anointing being accompanied by the liturgical prayer of the celebrant asking for the special grace of this sacrament.
► The special grace of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects: the uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, the strengthening, peace, and courage to endure the sufferings of illness or old age.
