Transcript of Anointing of the Sick

of the Sick

Sacramental Economy?
CCC 1116 - Sacraments are "powers that comes forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life-giving. They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church.
CCC 1076 - ... Christ manifests, makes present, and communicates his work of salvation through the liturgy of his Church...

...He acts through the sacraments... "the sacramental economy"; this is the communication of the fruits of Christ's Paschal mystery in the celebration of the Church's "sacramental" liturgy.
"If there is no change,
there is no Sacrament!"
The Sacraments Change You!
You may not always feel it
The Sacraments Work

Exodus 15:26 - .... I will not afflict you with any of the diseases with which I afflicted the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.
Mark 6:13 – “They drove out many demons, and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.”
James 5:13-15 – “...Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint [him] with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.”
Acts 28:8 – ...the father of Publius was sick with a fever and dysentery. Paul visited him and, after praying, laid his hands on him and healed him.”
Acts 8:7 - For unclean spirits, crying out in a loud voice, came out of many possessed people, and many paralyzed and crippled people were cured.”
Acts 19:11-12 – “So extraordinary were the mighty deeds God accomplished at the hands of Paul that when face cloths or aprons that touched his skin were applied to the sick, their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them”.
Rite of
Anointing of the Sick

3 Elements
1.) Prayer of Faith
2.) A Laying on of Hands
3.) Anointing with Oil
“Through this holy anointing, may the Lord in his love and mercy help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit…May the Lord who frees you from sin save you and raise you up.”
Sin enters our soul through the senses of our body
Effects of the Sacrament of the Sick
1.) Uniting the sick person with the suffering of Jesus
2.) Giving the person strength, peace and courage to endure the sufferings of old age (Grace)
3.) Imparting the forgiveness of sins
4.) Providing for the restoration of health if God wills it
5.) Helping the sick person in preparation for passing into eternal life with the grace of Reconciliation and Viaticum.
CCC 1500 & 1501
“Illness and suffering have always been among the gravest problems confronted in human life…man experiences his powerlessness, his limitations, and his finitude. Every illness can make us glimpse death.”
“Illness can lead to anguish, self-absorption, sometimes even despair and revolt against God.”
“It can also make a person more mature, helping him discern in his life what is not essential so that he can turn toward that which is. Very often illness provokes a search for God and a return to him.”
Galations 4:13
“you know that it was because of a physical illness that I originally preached the gospel to you”
"Is he sick?"

"No, worse, he's discouraged!"
CCC 1503-1505
“Jesus has the power not only to heal, but also to forgive sins; he has come to heal the whole man, soul and body; he is the physician the sick have need of.

His compassion toward all who suffer goes so far that he identifies himself with them: "I was sick and you visited me."
“ And so in the sacraments Christ continues to "touch" us in order to heal us.”
“....By his passion and death on the cross Christ has given a new meaning to suffering: it can henceforth configure us to him and unite us with his redemptive Passion.”
Call to have the Sacrament administered early.
"nobody’s prayers are more powerful than one who suffers"
-Father Riccardo
Faith isn’t a simple consent of the mind. Faith is also action and obedience.

Faith and works are essential together.
Matthew 7:21-26
"anyone who hears my words and does act on them is building a foundation on rock... anyone who hears my words and does not act on them is building a foundation on sand!
So, where does the Grace come from?
The Sacraments!

They change us.
They always work.
Sacrament of the Sick is an incredible gift to the Church

We should pray often for the chance to receive it
CCC 1123 - "The purpose of the sacraments is to sanctify men, to build up the Body of Christ and, finally, to give worship to God. By words and objects they also nourish, strengthen, and express your faith.”
1.) Is there any difference between Extreme Unction, Last Rites, Sacrament of the Sick or Anointing of the Sick?
• danger of death or other grave necessity
• inability to approach a minister of their own community
• they ask for it on their own
• they manifest Catholic faith in the sacraments
• be properly disposed, including a proper confession
9.) Can a young child be anointed?
Will I experience healing?
Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils;
they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.

GK Chesterton
