Mercy & Grace to Raise Us Up
The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick (once known as Last Rites or Extreme Unction) unites the suffering of those with a physical or mental sickness to the suffering of Christ. We are reminded of how Christ’s compassion for the sick healed body and soul. It is recommended before surgery, during dangerous illness, or if one is particularly weak and at risk of significant illness. These rites are highly valued as powerful aids to strength and courage.
