Through this sacrament, the whole church commends those who are ill to the Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. This sacrament is available to those whose physical, emotional or psychological health is impaired in some way.
By this sacrament, those who suffer are united to the Passion and death of Jesus Christ. The Lord himself showed great concern for the sick and commanded his followers to do likewise. Through this sacrament, Christ strengthens the faithful who are afflicted by illness, providing them with the strongest means of support.
