The effects of the sacrament of Extreme Unction are:
- an increase of sanctifying grace;
- comfort in sickness and strength against temptation;
- preparation for entrance into heaven by the remission of our venial sins and the cleansing of our souls from the remains of sin;
- health of body when it is good for the soul.
And the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him. (James 5:15).
