The Orthodox Church has always viewed body and soul as inseparable, and for that reason has stressed the necessity of preserving both in good health. The Church provides the Sacrament of Holy Unction, following Jesus Christ’s exhortation to his disciples to “heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons,” as an enduring sacrament of faith for the healing of sickness and the forgiveness of sins. The most familiar celebration of the Sacrament takes place on Great Wednesday of Holy Week. Videotaped at the Annunciation Cathedral in Houston, Texas.
