The ancient sacrament of Christianity Unctio Infirmorum

Apr 25, 2018

In the fourth volume, the first edition, fifth questions and 998th articles of the Catholic code, the craftsman was interpreted as "the use of oil Fu Mo patients and reciting the Scriptures stipulated in the etiquette book; the church was used to give the severely ill to the suffering and honourable Christ, and to ask him to give comfort and salvation." By the prayers of the sacraments, the sacraments, the sage, the holy work, and the oil of the craftsman, the ill friend meets with Jesus in the crisis of illness, or in the face of the danger of death, so that his friends can face the illness and suffering under the light of faith.

The patient's oil sacrament was seen by his recipients. In the early days of the church, he was seriously ill (Ya five 13~16). Although the godfather era and the Orthodox Church allowed the minor illnesses to receive the Fu oil, Fu oil ceremony was only for the dying people before the middle ancient times to the two Grand Council of Vatican (1962-1965). The more neutral view is that Fu's ritual should be a sacrament for the seriously ill. The craftsman's sanctuary is an ecclesiastical action. In etiquette, it includes reading the gospel and praying in the name of Christ. The holy oil in the oil lifting operation is consecrated by the bishop. The sacrament of the sacrament is a clergy of the church from the Middle Ages to the present, but there is no such restriction in the early church.

Like all the sacraments, the patient's oil is a group ceremonial ceremony, which can be held at home, hospital, or at the Holy Church. It can be used alone or at the same time as a group of sick people. The sacrifices of the patient's oil offering are very suitable for holding the memorial ceremony - the Lord's crossing. In some cases, if appropriate, the sacrament can be held before the celebration of the sacrament, and the sacrament of Thanksgiving (sacrament) after Fu Li Li. This holy thing is the sacrament of Christ's passover, and it is often the last holy thing to be received in the journey of the world, that is, "the grain" (the end of the holy body) that "crossed" the road to eternal life.

The holy words and the saints are an integral whole. At the beginning of the celebration, the first is repentance, followed by the ritual of the holy way. The words of Christ, the testimony of the apostles, awakened the faith of patients and groups, and prayed to the Lord for the power of the Holy Spirit.

The sacrament celebration mainly includes the following: "the elders of the church" (ya, 5:14) overlay their hands in silence; pray for the patients in the church's faith - this is the holy prayer of the holy God, and the blessings of the blessed oil (if possible, by the Bishop).
