Product Description

Sacraments are at the heart of our lives as Catholics, the way we celebrate together our continuing conversion and encounter with God. Sacramental preparation is essential if we are to experience the fullness of our life in community and in Christ. Ever conscious of the complex history of the church and its dynamic relationship to ritual, Father Lawrence Mick gives us these booklets-based on individual chapters of his popular Understanding the Sacraments Today-as a companion to the ongoing and repeated practices that nourish us.
Almost half of Mark's Gospel is made up of healing narratives, powerful signs of the arrival of God's kingdom in human history. Through these miracles Jesus revealed God's presence in the world and opened ears, eyes, and hearts to the reality of salvation. Reform of the sacrament of anointing since the Second Vatican Council has dramatically changed our practice and theological understanding over recent centuries. No longer called last rites or extreme unction, anointing of the sick gathers the community to pray for and minister to seriously ill members. Through prayer, anointing, and laying on of hands, the church provides special pastoral care meant not just for the dying but for all who are seriously ill. In Anointing, Father Mick recounts the history and explores the elements and roles of the sacrament in a way that integrates it into our mission and clarifies the parts we all have to play.

Editorial Reviews

Beginning with a clear introduction on the purpose and meaning of the sacraments, Fr. Mick provides a sound biblical, historical, and theological explanation of the development and current practice of the Sacrament of Anointing. Placed within the wider context of pastoral care of the sick, Fr. Mick offers a clear explanation of the distinction between the Sacrament of Anointing and the celebration of viaticum, and insights into the meaning of the sacrament and the ways in which sickness affects a person. Those who minister to the sick, homilists, those who teach the sacraments, and any Catholic individual or study group interested in learning more about the Sacrament of Anointing will benefit from reading this booklet. Questions for individual or small group reflection and discussion are provided at the end of this booklet.

    Order any one, or order all of these brief overviews, for a better understanding of the Sacraments. Lawrence E. Mick takes the time for a quick history lesson in each of the 7 individual sacraments covered in each of the booklets. He doesn't sugar coat anything and tells it like it is--often not putting the Christian Church in the best light for past deeds and beliefs. Published in 2007 it is up to date information for anyone at all levels/beliefs in the catholic (universal) Christian church. A steal at these prices!
