The liturgical life of the Catholic Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Matrimony, and Holy Orders. They are special occasions for experiencing God's saving presence.
ANOINTING OF THE SICK
Anointing of the Sick celebrates God's healing grace when we are seriously ill. We are anointed on the forehead and hands. We are joined to Jesus' suffering and are strengthened with God's grace.
