  • /*This part refers to the historical background part of the presentation.*/The anointing of the sick conveys several graces and imparts gifts of strengthening in the Holy Spirit against anxiety, discouragement, and temptation, and conveys peace and fortitude (CCC 1520). These graces flow from the atoning death of Jesus Christ, for "this was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, ‘He took our infirmities and bore our diseases’" (Matt. 8:17). Mark refers to the sacrament when he recounts how Jesus sent out the twelve disciples to preach, and "they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them" (Mark 6:13). In his epistle, James says, "Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven" (Jas. 5:14–15). The early Church Fathers recognized this sacrament’s role in the life of the Church. Around A.D. 250, Origen wrote that the penitent Christian "does not shrink from declaring his sin to a priest of the Lord and from seeking medicine . . . [of] which the apostle James says: ‘If then there is anyone sick, let him call the presbyters of the Church, and let them impose hands upon him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him’" (Homilies on Leviticus 2:4). In the year 350, Bishop Serapion wrote, "We beseech you, Savior of all men, you that have all virtue and power, Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and we pray that you send down from heaven the healing power of the only-begotten [Son] upon this oil, so that for those who are anointed . . . it may be effected for the casting out of every disease and every bodily infirmity . . . for good grace and remission of sins . . . " (The Sacramentary of Serapion 29:1).
  • A sacrament is an outward sign established by Jesus Christ to confer inward grace. In more basic terms, it is a rite that is performed to convey God’s grace to the recipient, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • The special grace of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects:the uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, for his own good and that of the whole Church;the strengthening, peace, and courage to endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of illness or old age;the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to obtain it through the sacrament of Penance;the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the salvation of his soul;the preparation for passing over to eternal life.Only priests (presbyters and bishops) can give the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, using oil blessed by the bishop, or if necessary by the celebrating presbyter himself.

    1. 1. ANOINTING OF THE SICK Group five
    2. 2. THE SACRAMENT’S ESTABLISHMENT Like all the sacraments, holy anointing was instituted by Jesus Christ during his earthly ministry. The Catechism explains, "This sacred anointing of the sick was instituted by Christ our Lord as a true and proper sacrament of the New Testament. It is alluded to indeed by Mark, but is the faithful and promulgated by James brother of the Lord" (CCC 1511; Mark 6:13
    3. 3. WHAT IS IT?
    4. 4. MATTER Sacramentals are devotional actions and objects instituted by the (Catholic) Church to assist them in practicing the acts of virtue which obtain God's graces. Unlike sacraments which actually deliver grace, sacramentals prepares one to receive grace.
    5. 5. MATTER The sacramentals of protection are those actions and objects which turn hearts towards God, always remembering that He is our refuge and our hope. They acknowledge one's helplessness against the snares of the devil and the lures of the world, one's weakness against sin without God's help. And as they need to be, these sacramentals are very powerful.
    6. 6. 1 – BLESSED SALT Blessed salt is an instrument of grace to preserve one from the corruption of evil occurring as sin, sickness, demonic influence, case of all sacramentals, its not from the sign itself, but by Church's official prayer of blessing
    7. 7. 2 – HOLY OIL Holy Oil represents strength, sweetness and spiritual activity. Christians are referred to as Christ' and so are anointed remain spiritually strong.
    8. 8. 2 – HOLY OIL The Church uses three oils in its liturgies: the Oil of Catechumens at Baptism and Holy Holy Chrism at Baptism, and Episcopal Ordinations, Sick, used in the Anointing None of these oils are for use in the home.

    12. 12. FORM
    13. 13. MINISTER "Neither deacons nor lay persons therefore may exercise such ministry and any action in this connection is a simulation of the sacrament" and would be "invalid," said the dicastery. Canon law provides sanctions for such an action, it added.
    14. 14. ANOINTING OF THE OIL ACCORDING TO A BELIEVER I n times past anointing oils were used for healing the sick, casting out devils, consectraing ones self, personal belongings and family members. Formally for the purpose of dedicating that which is sanctifide or set apart to God.
    15. 15. ANOINTING OF THE OIL ACCORDING TO A BELIEVER To anoint something or someone was to come into agreement that the person or object belongs to God. Many feel that because we are under a new covenant that there is no real power in the so called anointing oils and therfore why bother.
    16. 16. ANOINTING OF THE OIL ACCORDING TO A BELIEVER There was never any power in the oils to begin with, the power was in the obedience. So when the Lord says get baptized in water we get baptised. When he said take communion we take communion. When he said through his is apostles or prophets use anointing oils we choose to obey. When He said "Do this in rememberance of me" we simply do it.
    17. 17. THE OIL IN A MASS On Holy Thursday morning, the bishop, joined by the priests of the diocese, gather at the Cathedral to celebrate the Chrism Mass. This Mass manifests the unity of the priests with their bishop.
    18. 18. THE OIL IN A MASS Here the bishop blesses three oils — the Oil of Catechumens ("Oleum Catechumenorum" or "Oleum Sanctorum"), the Oil of the Infirm ("Oleum Infirmorum"), and Holy Chrism ("Sacrum Chrisma") — which will be used in the administration of the sacraments throughout the diocese for the year.
