THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS OF THE 

CHURCH

The Sacraments Of Healing

THE SACRAMENT OF ANOINTING 

OF THE SICK

313. How was sickness viewed in the Old 

Testament?

In the Old Testament sickness was experienced 
as  a  sign  of  weakness  and  at  the  same  time 
perceived  as  mysteriously  bound  up  with  sin. 
The  prophets  intuited  that  sickness  could  also 
have a redemptive value for one’s own sins and 
those of others. Thus sickness was lived out in 
the  presence  of  God  from  whom  people 
implored healing.

314. What is the significance of Jesus’ 

compassion for the sick?

The  compassion  of  Jesus  toward  the  sick  and 
his  many  healings  of  the  infirm  were  a  clear 
sign  that  with  him  had  come  the  Kingdom  of 
God  and  therefore  victory  over  sin,  over 
suffering,  and  over  death.  By  his  own  passion 
and  death  he  gave  new  meaning  to  our 
suffering which, when united with his own, can 
become a means of purification and of salvation 
for us and for others.

315. What is the attitude of the Church 

toward the sick?

Having  received  from  the  Lord  the  charge  to 
heal the sick, the Church strives to carry it out 
by  taking  care  of  the  sick  and  accompanying 
them with her prayer of intercession. Above all, 
the  Church  possesses  a  sacrament  specifically 
intended  for  the  benefit  of  the  sick.  This 
sacrament  was  instituted  by  Christ  and  is 
attested by Saint James: “Is anyone among you 
sick?  Let  him  call  in  the  presbyters  of  the 
Church and let them pray over him and anoint 
him  with  oil  in  the  name  of  the  Lord”  (Jm 
5:14-15).

316. Who can receive the sacrament of the 

anointing of the sick?

Any  member  of  the  faithful  can  receive  this 
sacrament as soon as he or she begins to be in 
danger of death because of sickness or old age. 
The  faithful  who  receive  this  sacrament  can 
receive  it  several  times  if  their  illness  becomes 
worse or another serious sickness afflicts them. 
The  celebration  of  this  sacrament  should,  if 
possible,  be  preceded  by  individual  confession 
on the part of the sick person.

318. How is this sacrament celebrated?

The  celebration  of  this  sacrament  consists 
essentially  in  an  anointing  with  oil  which  may 
be  blessed  by  the  bishop.  The  anointing  is  on 
the  forehead  and  on  the  hands  of  the  sick 
person accompanied by the prayer of the priest 
who  asks  for  the  special  grace  of  this 
sacrament.

319. What are the effects of this sacrament?

This  sacrament  confers  a  special  grace  which 
unites  the  sick  person  more  intimately  to  the 
Passion of Christ for his good and for the good 
of  all  the  Church.  It  gives  comfort,  peace, 
courage, and even the forgiveness of sins if the 
sick  person  is  not  able  to  make  a  confession. 
Sometimes,  if  it  is  the  will  of  God,  this 
sacrament even brings about the restoration of 
physical  health.  In  any  case  this  Anointing 
prepares the sick person for the journey to the 
Father’s House.

320. What is Viaticum?

Viaticum  is  the  Holy  Eucharist  received  by 
those  who  are  about  to  leave  this  earthly  life 
and are preparing for the journey to eternal life. 
Communion  in  the  body  and  blood  of  Christ 
who  died  and  rose  from  the  dead,  received  at 
the  moment  of  passing  from  this  world  to  the 
Father, is the seed of eternal life and the power 
of the resurrection.

THE SACRAMENT OF THE ANOINTING

OF THE SICK

World Day of Prayer for the Sick,

Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes,

Wednesday, February 11 @ 7PM Mass

On the above date—at Mass—the sacrament of 

the anointing of the sick will be given to all 

those whose health is seriously affected.

Who may receive this sacrament? All those 

who have a serious and chronic illness: cancer, 

leukaemia, lupus, etc; those facing serious 

surgery; those who are elderly and in danger of 

death by virtue of their age; those who are in 

immediate  danger of death.

Those effects or benefits of the sacrament were 
numbered  in  the  Catechism  of  the  Catholic 
Church (n.1532)
—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/her soul;
—the  preparation  for  the  passing  over  to 
eternal life.

SAINTS OF THE WEEK

Feast, Presentation of the Lord: Monday, Feb 2. At the 
end of the fourth century, a woman named Etheria 
made  a  pilgrimage  to  Jerusalem.  Her  journal, 
discovered in 1887, gives an unprecedented glimpse 
of  liturgical  life  there.  Among  the  celebrations  she 
describes is the Epiphany (Jan6), the observance of 
Christ’s  birth,  and  the  gala  procession  in  honor  of 
his  Presentation  in  the  Temple  40  days  later.  The 
observance spread throughout the Western Church 
in the fifth and sixth centuries.

At the beginning of the eighth century, Pope Sergius 
inaugurated  a  candlelight  procession;  at  the  end  of 
the  same  century  the  blessing  and  distribution  of 
candles which continues to this day became part of 
the  celebration,  giving  the  feast  its  popular  name: 
Candlemas.

Quote: 

“Christ himself says, ‘I am the light of the 

world.’  And  we  are  the  light,  we  ourselves,  if 
we  receive  it  from  him....  But  how  do  we 
receive  it,  how  do  we  make  it  shine?  The 
candle  tells  us:  by  burning,  and  being 
consumed in the burning. A spark of fire, a ray 
of love, an inevitable immolation are celebrated 
over  that  pure,  straight  candle,  as,  pouring 

forth its gift of light, it exhausts itself in silent 
sacrifice” (Paul VI).

PREPARING BEFORE LENT BEGINS

Taking some time to get ready for Lent will ensure 
that we aren't going to miss the first week or two of 
Lent,  because  we  are  just  getting  started.  Lent 
begins on Ash Wednesday, but we want to be ready 
to  really  take  off  on  that  day,  rather  than  just 
beginning  to  think  about  Lent  on  that  day.  Part  of 
what  makes  a  vacation  or  a  special  anniversary  so 
special is the build-up to it.

Before  we  get  to  Ash  Wednesday,  we  should  start 
asking ourselves some questions and we should start 
w i t h 

s o m e 

p r e p a r a t i o n s . 

"What  does  God 

want  to  give  me 

this  year?"  This 

q u e s t i o n  m a y 

require that I slow 

down  a  bit  and 

listen  to  my  inner 

s p i r i t .  F o r 

example,  even  if 

I'm  very  busy,  I 

realize I'm hungry 

when  I  hear  my 

stomach  start  "growling."  "What  am  I  going  to  be 
doing  on  Ash  Wednesday?"  Too  often,  Ash 
Wednesday  is  like  every  other  day,  except  that  I 
manage  to  get  to  church  and  get  ashes  on  my 
forehead.  Is  there  anything  else  I  can  do  on  Ash 
Wednesday?  How  will  fasting  and  abstaining 
happen for me, for my family on that special day?

It  doesn't  need  a  lot  of  time  to  prepare  for  the 
beginning  of  Lent.  It  just  takes  desire  and  focus. 
God  can  do  so  much  with  that.  We  can  give  God 
more  of  a  space  to  touch  our  hearts  if  we  begin  to 
establish  some  simple  patterns.  We  could  wake  up 
each  morning,  and  for  something  like  a  half  a 
minute to a minute, stand by the edge of our beds, 
and just ask the Lord for the grace to let this day be 
one  in  which  I  long  for  the  beginning  of  Lent. 
Perhaps we need to ask for specific helps or graces 
to get ready to begin Lent. Whatever we try to say, 
our Lord can understand the Spirit trying to speak 
through  our  simple  words.  And  all  it  takes  is  the 
time to find and put on our slippers. And each night, 
in the days ahead, we can practice giving thanks to 
God before I go to bed. This simple pattern, in the 
morning  and  evening  can  stir  our  spirits  to  look 
forward  to  and  prepare  for  Lent,  as  a  season  of 
grace.

May our Lord bless us all on this journey ahead.

ASH Wednesday IS February 18

Jesus

Commentary 1 – Miracles prove God loves us 

These  individuals  were  deeply  troubled  and 
Jesus  healed  them.  Jesus  came  to  heal  both 
body  and  soul.  Most  scripture  scholars  now 
agree  that  miracles  were  an  important  part  of 
Jesus'  ministry  and  of  the  memory  of  that 
ministry in the early Church. We simply cannot 
abandon them to please those who say miracles 
are impossible. The precise explanation of how 
these  healings  were  accomplished  is  another 
matter  and  perhaps  one  that  is  also  beside  the 
point.  Jesus  did  not  work  miracles  to  prove 
anything.  Rather  they  were  signs  that  God's 
healing love is at work in the world.” 

Extract from a homily by Fr Andrew Greeley 

Commentary  2  –  Jesus  speaks  with  the  authority  of 
His father

“Do you believe that God’s word has power to 
set  you  free  and  to  transform  your  life?  When 
Jesus taught he spoke with authority. He spoke 
the  word  of  God  as  no  one  had  spoken  it 
before. When the Rabbis taught they supported 
their  statements  with  quotes  from  other 
authorities. The prophets spoke with delegated 
authority  –  ‘Thus  says  the  Lord.’  When  Jesus 
spoke  he  needed  no  authorities  to  back  his 

statements.  He  was  authority  incarnate  –  the 
Word of God made flesh. When he spoke, God 
spoke.  When  he  commanded  even  the  demons 
obeyed. 

“Augustine  of  Hippo  (354-430)  remarked  that 
‘faith  is  mighty,  but  without  love  it  profits 
nothing.  The  devils  confessed  Christ,  but 
lacking  charity  it  availed  nothing.  They  said, 
'What  have  we  to  do  with  you  (Mark  1:24)?' 
They confessed a sort of faith, but without love. 
Hence they were devils.’ Faith is powerful, but 
without  love  it  profits  nothing  (1  Cor  13). 
Scripture tells us that true faith works through 
love (Gal5:6) and abounds in hope (Rom15:13). 
Our  faith  is  made  perfect  in  love  because  love 
orients  us  to  the  supreme  good  which  is  God 
himself  as  well  as  the  good  of  our  neighbour 
who is created in the image and likeness of God 
(Gen1:26,27).  Hope  anchors  our  faith  in  the 
promises of God and purifies our desires for the 
things which will last for eternity. That is why 
the word of Christ has power to set us free from 
all that would keep us bound in sin, deception, 
and despair.”

Extract from a reflection on the readings by Dan Schwager

“…For he taught them as one having 

authority.”

Why Aren’t We Happy?

2. Happiness is just a feeling, and different people 
feel differently about different things, so different 
things  make  different  people  happy.  “Different 
strokes  for  different  folks.”  For  some  people, 
happiness is a warm puppy; for other people, it is 
extreme sports. How can there be one road map for 
everybody?
There  is  one  mistake  in  that  argument: 
happiness is not just a feeling.
Here  are  five  things  that  show  that 
happiness is not just a feeling.
1. Feelings come and go, but happiness—

deep  happiness—stays.  Feelings  are 
fleeting.  They  are  like  waves  on  the 
surface of the sea; happiness is like the 
solid  calm  at  the  bottom.  Waves  are 
great to surf on but impossible to build 
on or live on.

2. Happiness  is  the  deepest  thing  in  us. 

We long for it with all our heart, as our 
end  or  goal,  not  just  as  a  means.  But 
feelings  are  not  the  very  deepest  thing 
in  us.  Feelings  usually  accompany 
happiness,  like  friends.  Happiness-
feelings are the friends of happiness, but 
not happiness itself. 

We  north-Americans  are  much  more 
worried  about  our  feelings  than  any 
other  culture  in  history  ever  was.  It 
might  be  a  really  liberating  experience 
just  to  forget  our  feelings  for  a  while, 
not  because  they  are  bad  or  worthless 
or unimportant but because there are so 
many  things  that  are  even  more 
important.

3. Feelings are not in our control; they just 

happen.  You  can’t  just  command 

yourself  to  feel  differently.  But 

happiness does not just happen by luck 

or  chance.  We  can  be  in  control  of  our 

happiness

.  You  are  probably  shocked  at 

that  statement.  But  I  will  explain  it  in 

the   next paragraph.

4.The reason why we 

can  be  in  control  of  our  happiness  is 
that  the  most  important  cause  of 
happiness is goodness. Good people are 
happy; evil people are not. And we are 
in  control  of  our  goodness.  We  are 
responsible

  for  being  a  good  person;  we 

are  free  to  choose  between  being  good 
or  evil.  Therefore,  we  are  in  control  of 
the  most  important  part  of  our 
happiness  or  unhappiness,  because  we 
are  in  control  of  its  most  important 
cause, our own goodness or evil. 

Of course there are other causes of our 
happiness  or  unhappiness  that  we  are 
not in control of: the things that happen 
to us against our will. Terrible tragedies 
often strike good people. But even these 
will  harm  us  much  less  if  we  are  good 
and will harm us much more if   we are 
bad. A large, clean, deep lake can take a 
lot  of  garbage  without  becoming 
polluted, but a small, dirty, shallow lake 
cannot.

5.  Some things do in fact make us truly  
     happy, and some do not. So we can be 
     wrong about it, we can make mistakes 
     about it, we can think something can 
     make us happy when it can’t. So we are 
     disappointed. 

But whatever we can be wrong about is 
objectively  real,  not  just  our  own 
subjective  feelings.  Being  wrong  means 
that  our  subjective  ideas  fail  to  match 
the objective reality.  
Therefore, happiness is not just our own 
subjective feelings.

So  it’s  crucial  to  find  out  what  road  really 
does lead to true happiness and what roads 
do not. So we will explore seven of the most 
common  roads,  seven  of  the  most  common 
answers to the question “What is the road to 
happiness?”  The  possible  answers  are:

 

wealth,  fame  respect,  health,  pleasure, 
power, and religion.

WHAT DOES THE CHURCH TEACH?

Parish Meeting Room # 1 

With Fr Simon / Cost $22

Wednesday, Nov 19 @ 7:30 PM

Session 1

Why are we able to believe God?

Why do we seek God?

What does God show about himself when he sends 

his Son to us?

How can we tell what belongs to the true faith?

How can sacred scripture be “truth” if not 

everything in it is right?

Faith -- what is it?

What does my faith have to do with the Church?

Why do we believe in only one God?

What does it mean to say that God is love?

Wednesday, Dec 10 @ 7:30 PM

Session 2

Can someone accept the theory of evolution and still 

believe in the Creator?

If God is all-knowing and all-powerful, why does he 

not prevent evil?

What is heaven? What is hell?

From where does man get his soul?

What is sin?

What does it mean to say that Jesus is “the only-

begotten Son of God”?

Isn’t it improper to call Mary the “Mother” of God?

To Whom does Jesus promise “the kingdom of 

God”?

Did God will the death of his only Son?

Why are we too supposed to accept suffering in our 

lives and thus “take up our cross” and thereby follow 

Jesus?

What changed in the world as a result of the 

resurrection?

What will it be like when Christ judges us and the 

whole world?
