Product Description

Illness is a part of human life, and as an ordained minister you will likely encounter a great deal of illness throughout your life and work. Very frequently, you may feel called to counsel or cater to the needs of these individuals, but may not know exactly what to say or how to say it.

This handy resource is the official version of the Rite of Anointing of the Sick. The book, bound in soft-to-touch leather, includes Scripture readings from the New American Bible. The large type makes it easy to read, and it is durable enough to withstand your frequent use.

Many of our ministers have indicated to us the valuable tool this book was in times of need. You will discover that, in times of great needs, being well-equipped with tools like this will aid you in every aspect of your ministry.

The book also gives you a guide as to where to anoint on the body by placing our oils. We recommend with this instructional guide you include our anointing oil.
