All seniors and those who are ill are invited to receive the healing touch of Jesus at a special 11 a.m. Mass on
February 4, 2017. For those who are weakened by age and different ailments, the Lord wants to make sure that you are not suffering alone. He wants to use this Sacrament to support you in this time of difficulty.
Anyone who is going through life-threatening surgeries should receive this sacrament. With Jesus on our side, it is consoling to know that we can fight a good fight. A free luncheon will be provided like previous years after this special Mass. Also, some of our young people from our parish will be serving this wonderful luncheon. God’s
blessings to all who help to coordinate this event.
“The special grace of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick has as its effects: the uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, for his own good and that of the whole Church; the strengthening, peace, and courage to endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of illness or old age; the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to
obtain it through the sacrament of penance; the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the salvation of his soul; the preparation for passing over to eternal life” (CCC 1532).
