ANOINTING - The act of tracing a mark in the form of a cross, with holy oil on a person or a thing in a Church ceremony. Annointing is used in sacraments of Baptism, Chrysmation, and Annointing the sick, for the healing of body and soul (JAMES 5:14). Churches and altars are annointed when they are consecrated. On the eve of Feast days at Matins the faithful are anointed with the oil blessed at the Litiya.
