"Jesus came in order to show God's love. He often does this in places where we feel especially threatened: in the weakening of our life through sickness. God wants us to become well in body and soul and therefore, to believe and to acknowledge the coming of God's kingdom. Sometimes a person has to become sick in order to recognise what we all - healthy or sick - need more than anything else: GOD. We have no life except in Him. In the New Testament, sick people would seek the presence of Jesus; they tried "to touch Him, for power came forth from Him and healed them all" (Lk 6:19) - YOUCAT #241-242
This sacrament provides strength for the sick person and the support of the Church to pray with, and for the sick person.
WHAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER WHEN A CATHOLIC PERSON IS SERIOUSLY ILL

- Ministry of Pastoral Care for the Elderly and the Sick (PaCES)
