Anointing: Christ’s Healing Touch
The seven sacraments hold a special place in the Christian life. The CTS ‘Sacraments – Meeting Christ’ series looks at each one as a privileged moment in which to meet Christ, gives practical advice and unfolds the scriptural roots and the long and rich tradition that makes each sacrament a microcosm of Christian life.
The Anointing of the Sick is a sacrament that many have never actually witnessed let alone taken part in. Fr Jerome Bertram looks at the history and development of the Sacrament from its origins in the letter of James to its use today as a real encounter with the healing power of Christ and his Church.
