Anointing of the Sick Mass
Mon, Feb 12, 2024
World Day of the Sick is observed in the church every year on the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes (February 11), who gives healing and hope. Every year on or near this day, we have a special Mass with the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. This anointing is for all who wish to receive it, especially those facing surgery, the frail and elderly, and anyone who is feeling pain or suffering in body, mind, and spirit.
James 5:14-16: Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.
