Holy Wednesday Unction: Annointing the Physically & Spiritually Sick

Tonight in Orthodox Christian Churches around the world, the Mystery of Unction is given by the presbyters (priests) and bishops to the Faithful Christians of their flock. Are we not all spiritually not 100%? I think so.

Some may wonder what is the scriptural reference to this Tradition. Although Tradition created the Bible and not the Bible creating Tradition, here it is:

"Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven"
(James 5:14-15).
