"Is anyone 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."
Throughout Jesus' ministry, he would heal those who had asked him. The tradition of praying for the sick and anointing them with holy oil dates back to the time of the apostles. The purpose of this sacrament is to provide reassurance of healing to those who have serious illnesses.
