By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. The sick person before God. Illness, sin and evil. Jesus' ministry of healing, and His taking on our infirmities. Jesus gives to his disciples his ministry of healing. Redemptive suffering. Who receives and who administers the anointing of the sick? How is the sacrament celebrated? The effects of the sacrament.
