Anointing of the Sick

The first grace of this sacrament is one of strengthening peace and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with the condition of serious illness or the fraiity of old age. The Anointing of the Sick completes our conformity to the death and Resurrection of Christ.

In addition to the Anointing of the Sick, the Church offers those who are about to leave this life the Eucharist as viaticum.
