Orthodox Sacrament of Healing – in a noisy hospital

In this video, Fr. Wilbur Ellsworth is giving our 7-year-old daughter Andrea the Orthodox Sacrament of Healing, also known as the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, also called Holy Unction. This Sacrament is based on the 5th chapter of James in the New Testament. Andrea’s patron saint is Mary the Mother of God, the Theotokos.
Please keep Andrea in your prayers!

This 1st part of the video shows the first 15 minutes prior to the anointing with oil:

This 2nd part begins with the prayer which precedes the actual anointing itself:
