Abstract

John 20:22-23 points to the Institution the Sacrament of penance, ‘receive the Holy Spirit, if you forgive sin of any they are forgiven and if you retain they are retained. It is therefore, a remedy to those who, after baptism have delivered themselves to the bondage of sin. Anointing of the Sick on the other hand (Mark 6:13), promulgated by Apostle James that the sick are to be presented to the elders of the Church, prayed over and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of the faith will save the sick person and the Lord will forgive the person (James 5:14-15). This article shall use the Scriptural texts to defend the view that both Penance and Sacrament of the sick are sacraments of healing.
