Healing during suffering
As did Jesus, the Church prioritizes spiritual healing, especially the forgiveness of sins,
above all other types of healing.
Prayers of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick seek all types of healing; however, physical healing is not always accomplished.
While the suffering of illness or dying cannot always be alleviated, you can pray to join it to the suffering of Christ on the cross and mysteriously participate in his saving power.
