Beloved Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

I have come to your wonderful parish, to serve this very special service of Holy Unction with you, the faithful Christians of Holy Trinity in Bridgeport. Tonight, we gather for the healing of body and soul, and for the forgiveness of our sins, in accordance with the Epistle of Saint Iakovos, the Brother of the Lord, who is often called “James.”[*] The Mystery of Anointing with Holy Oil is a profound Mystery that has filled our Churches since the days of the Apostles.
