In this episode of the Catholic Link podcast, Fr. Rob talks about the often misunderstood Sacrament in the Church: Anointing of the Sick. What is the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick for? What does Anointing of the Sick do? Fr. Rob answers these questions as well as why there is sickness and pain in the world to begin with. Spoiler alert: the answer to that is sin. Anointing of the Sick is a way of uniting one’s suffering to Christ and allowing him to use your pain and suffering as a means to salvation. Have you ever known anyone who received anointing of the sick? Have you ever received anointing of the sick?
Listen to the previous episode where Fr. Rob talks about the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Fr. Rob reveals that in the past he struggled to fully understand the Assumption of Mary and other Mariology topics. It seems, though, that he has come around. Fr. Rob discussed the theological implications for the Assumption, and its patristic roots to the early Church Fathers. Finally, he talks about how we are called to live our eternity on this side of life. Meaning, we live Heaven or Hell on this side of life and then, life in eternity is a continuation of that in the most complete way. So, enjoy this podcast about the Assumption.
