Unción de los enfermos

“By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ.”

– Catechism of the Catholic Church

Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.”

– James 5:14-16

La Unción de los Enfermos, junto con la Reconciliación, es uno de los dos sacramentos de la curación. La unción de los enfermos es el sacramento por el cual Jesús, a través de la unción y las oraciones del sacerdote, da salud y fortaleza a una persona que está gravemente enferma.

La Santa Misa, incluida la Unción de los enfermos, se ofrece los primeros sábados a las 8:00 a.m.

Para solicitar la unción de los enfermos con cita previa a la cirugía, cuando esté enfermo u hospitalizado, comuníquese con la Oficina Parroquial al (510) 895-5631.
