Anointing of the Sick
Suffering and illness have always been among the greatest problems that trouble the human spirit. Although closely linked with the human condition, sickness cannot as a general rule be regarded as a punishment inflicted on each individual for personal sins (John 9:3). The Lord himself showed great concern for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick and commanded his followers to do likewise. This is clear from the gospels and above all from the existence of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, which He instituted and which is made known in the Letter of James.
