Extreme Unction

Extreme Unction, one of the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church. It consists in the anointing by the priests of the channels of the five senses, accompanied by prayers that all sins of which they have been the means may be forgiven. The Greek Church makes a more frequent use of it in disease than the Roman Church, which reserves it for cases of mortal sickness. (James v. 14.)
