The ritual consists of the priest(s) going to each person, saying a prayer, then anointing the forehead and the palms of the hands with oil. I watched the faces of the people as they were being blessed. Many tears were shed....tears are part of the healing process. While no one "rested" in the Spirit, the Spirit was very much at work. And in each face I could see the wounded Christ.
If you ever have the opportunity to attend an anointing service, give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
