We all know some story from the Gospels where Jesus heals someone who is ill or suffering. As Christians we believe that Jesus is with us in every human experience, including when we are ill, burdened or suffering in any way. Jesus stands with us, offering us love and peace, strength and healing. And so the Church has the Sacrament of Anointing the Sick.
