A Brief Catechism for Adults - Lesson 27: The Sacrament of Extreme Unction

Lesson 27: The Sacrament of Extreme Unction

"Is any man sick among you?  Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.  And the prayer of faith shall save the sick man:  and the Lord shall raise him up:  and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him."  (James 5:14-15)

  1. What is the Sacrament of Extreme Unction?
       Extreme Unction is the Sacrament which gives health and strength to the soul and sometimes to the body to persons who are in danger of death.
    The words "Extreme Unction" mean "last anointing."  In Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders, the body is anointed with holy oil.  In the Sacrament of Extreme Unction the body is anointed for the last time.  Hence the name.

PRACTICAL POINTS

  1. Do not worry that a sick person will be frightened by the priest, because Catholics should always be glad to see the priest in order to receive the comforts that only the Sacraments can bring.

Lesson 27 of 43.

This is now known as the Sacrament of Healing. If you or a Catholic relative are scheduled for surgery, please contact your parish priest to make arrangements to receive this Sacrament. It is normally administered just prior to surgery.
