The Sacrament of Holy Unction during Great Lent in the Slavic VicariateMarch 23, 2021
The sacrament of Holy Unction is the complete healing of the individual both physically and spiritually through anointing with blessed oil. In the prayers read during the service, the clergy ask God for the forgiveness of the sins of those present and for their recovery. For spiritual healing repentance, combined with a firm commitment to living life according to the Commandments of God, is necessary. The Sacrament is known as Unction, because it is performed by a unit of several priests (a congregation or a council of clergy).
