To: Salvation

My pastor spoke about the Holy Oils at the beginning of the Holy Thursday Mass. Later, just as he was beginning the sermon, a man in the congregation had chest pains, shortness of breath, and dizziness. Father grabbed the Oil of the Sick and immediately performed the Sacrament of Anointing.

My second son, Tom, was the server, and he was in awe. “Father gave him Anointing of the Sick, and then he was feeling much better! It worked!” (An ambulance was called, too, of course.

Then this morning, while we were helping to set up the church for the Easter Vigil, Tom got too close to the stand that holds the oils (he’s big and rather clumsy) and almost knocked it over :=). I hope he doesn’t change his mind about being a priest; he has such a sense of the supernatural.

Here’s hoping that the gentleman in your congregation is feeling much better.
