The older forms of the sacraments of penance and anointing of the sick may have made them forbidding to many Catholics, but Vatican II restored them to their rightful role as places of encounter and reconciliation between the individual Catholic and the healing power of Christ through His Church.
Misunderstandings still linger, however, and Father Paul Keller, experienced in parish as well as classroom settings clears them up in 101 Questions and Answers on the Sacraments of Healing.
A brief overview of the sacraments of healing is followed by separate sections on each sacrament that cover their New Testament origins, history, and theology.
Practical information rounds out the book t make it an indispensable pastoral resource as well as a valuable text for catechists, RCIA, parish adult education, and college and seminary courses on the sacraments.
