Anointing of the Sick
The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its purpose the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1528)
This Sacrament gives those who are sick and suffering peace, consolation, and strength to overcome their hardships.
The greatest work of Christ was not to heal the paralyzed people (although He did), but rather to heal people of their sins (by His death and resurrection) and bring their souls back to life.
Usually, Anointing of the Sick is combined with Reconciliation, to bring totality of healing both physically and spiritually.
