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.

All Ministers and Reverends should have this

By Roger Blevins, Memphis, TN

After being ordained through the Universal Life Church, I decided to volunteer at the local hospital a few days a week. Pastoral Care of the Sick, is the perfect guide for any pastor or reverend, unsure of what to say to those who are ill and in need of spiritually uplift during their time of sickness. This book is full of hundreds blessings for those who are sick or dying. You don't really realize how powerful just spending time with those who are sick and convalescing can be until you've been there yourself. I've experienced, first hand, how reading over these prayers and reading to the ill, in their greatest time of need, can heal. A must have for any newly ordained reverend.
