Healin gsacraments

  1. 1. RECONCILIATION and ANOINTING of the SICK
  2. 2. RECONCILIATION Reconcile – to re-establish a close relationship; to return to friendship Stole – a vestment worn by a priest when he hears confession; a narrow cloth worn around the shoulders
  3. 3. There are four essential elements of the Sacrament of Reconciliation: 1. Contrition – true sorrow or regret for sin, and a willingness to do better 2. Confession – telling your sins to a priest 3. Absolution – the forgiveness of sin, granted by God through the priest. Father will say this prayer: “I absolve you from your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” 4. Penance – doing something to make up for sin (prayer, service…) * We say an Act of Contrition, a prayer that expresses our regret for wrongdoing.
  4. 4. Sin is the conscious, deliberate choice to do wrong Sin turns us away from God and from each other Original Sin – the separation from God that has been part of the human condition since people first chose to turn away from God’s love. Personal Sin – wrong actions chosen by an individual *mortal sin is serious sin, chosen freely and with full knowledge of its seriousness * venial sin is less serious, pardonable sin
  5. 5. •Social Sin – any unjust structure, system, or attitude which denies people their rights and dignity. •We become part of social sin when we encourage or allow such attitudes. Social sins include: murder, capital punishment abortion and infanticide euthanasia – “mercy killing” – ending a life because of a mental or physical handicap or illness; this includes assisted suicide substance abuse – drugs, alcohol discrimination / prejudice – bias against another person; judging a person based on their age, gender, race, nationality, appearance, etc… stereotype – assuming that ALL members of a group are the same
  6. 6. Free will is the gift of God that allows human beings to do what is right, or to sin. We are free to accept or reject God’s grace. Because of free will, no one can make us sin Using “human nature” as an excuse to sin shows the effect of Original Sin in our lives, and weak use of our own free will.
  7. 7. The CAPITAL SINS: Pride – a false and excessive “love” of one’s own abilities; conceit Greed – uncontrolled desire for material things; covetousness or avarice Lust – a desire for physical pleasures which violate human dignity Anger – uncontrolled, unjustifiable resentment or hostility toward another person; a desire for revenge Gluttony – uncontrolled indulgence in food, drink, drugs, etc, which results in harm to oneself. Envy – feelings of resentment and ill-will because of someone else’s goodness, fortune, talent or success; jealousy Sloth – excessive laziness; a waste of God-given talents; a refusal to do what is necessary
  8. 8. Each of the Capital Sins has an opposing VIRTUE to cultivate: Humility – recognizing our abilities as gifts of God and realizing our limitations - opposes PRIDE Contentment – being satisfied with what you have, with your appearance, talents and abilities. - opposes GREED and ENVY Generosity – a willingness to share with others – opposes GREED Chastity – being modest in your behavior and dress; treating your body with dignity – opposes LUST
  9. 9. Patience – controlling feelings of frustration – opposes ANGER Meekness – being calm when faced with insult; maintaining our dignity – opposes ANGER Temperance – acting in a reasonable and moderate manner; controlling our desires and emotions – opposes GLUTTONY Love – a wish for another person’s success; joy in another’s goodness; caring about and caring for others – opposes ANGER Industry – willingness to do our share of work – opposes SLOTH Zeal – pursuit of spiritual and moral growth, spreading the Kingdom of God by our words and actions, showing strong faith – opposes SLOTH
  10. 10. Anointing of the Sick is a healing sacrament which shows God’s care and concern for the ill. - This sacrament brings Jesus’ healing, comfort and strength Rite of Anointing: the priest lays his hands on the person, prays over them, and anoints the person’s hands and forehead with chrism. A person receiving this sacrament may also be given the opportunity to receive Reconciliation and Eucharist
  11. 11. Eucharist given when a person is near death is called viaticum, which means “food for the journey” A person’s last anointing before death is called Extremunction (from the words extreme and unction = “last anointing”) This last anointing fortifies the end of our earthly life and prepares us to enter our Father’s Kingdom in the next life. LAST RITES: A person’s last reception of Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Anointing Mark 6:12-13
