Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church,
and they should pray over him and anoint [him] with oil in the name of the Lord,
and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up.
If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.

James 5:14-15

The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament of healing and peace. The sacrament is given when someone falls seriously ill or is near death. A priest anoints them, hears their confession, and prays over them. The priest prays for the blessings of Christ for physical and spiritual strength and healing of the individual.
