Key Steps

  1. Recap:
    1. Sacrament, Sin, Reconciliation, Penance, Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist
  2. Sacraments of Healing
    1. Luke 5: 17-26
      1. God is making a point with this passage
        1. Spiritual and Physical healing is possible. In fact God desires it for us
        2. Spiritual healing occurs BEFORE physical. 
        3. It takes something from us.. our permission, sometimes others on behalf of us. 
      2. While one occurs before the other, it is not less important. They work together similar to Sacraments of Initiation
      3. BOTH Reconciliation and Anointing have a spiritual and physical element to it
        1. Rec.: Forgiveness, and Lightness
        2. Anoint: Strength and Peace
    2. Sacrament of Anointing
      1. Has anyone had any experience with it?
      2. A sacrament that we usually pair with older people.
      3.  Reminds us that suffering is part of being human
      4. For those who find themselves in a state of suffering due to illness or other bodily/mentally ailment
        1. This healing is not always a bodily healing, but a spiritual one, giving us necessary strength and will to endure the sufferings of life and to prepare us for our death. Sometimes physical recovery comes from this sacrament as well, but we have to understand that it is not a magic spell to prolong life.
      5. St. James instructs us in his letter, “Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the [priests] of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.”
    3. What happens
      1. Unites us to Christ's Passion
      2. Forgives our sins that we are unable to confess
      3. Priest or Deacon must give the sacrament
      4. Can have it multiple times
      5. Oil of the Sick

Key Steps:

  1. Small Group
    1. Eucharist
      1. Have you ever thought about how it would feel to literally receive God into your body? Does that change what happens when you receive communion?
      2. Do you struggle with truly believing in God’s real presence in the Eucharist? Why or why not?
      3. Why is it a sin to not receive Eucharist on Sunday?
      4. How can you prepare better to receive it?
    2. Anointing
      1. Why were the Pharisees and scribes so closed off to Jesus? Have you ever been resentful of God’s work or God’s forgiveness?
      2. Do you believe that God can cure people today? Have you ever experienced this?
      3. What do you need healing in your life for? How do you want God to make you whole?
