The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing in the Catholic Church. It is intended for individuals who are facing serious illness, injury, old age, or any other physical or mental condition that causes suffering. Through the sacrament, a person is anointed with holy oil and receives the grace and peace of God's healing.
The sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is available to all individuals, regardless of age, who are in need of physical or spiritual healing. It is not necessary to be conscious or able to fully participate in the sacrament, as the grace of God's healing is not dependent on conscious reception.
