From Deseret Books: Administering to the sick is a powerful ordinance, charged with symbolism and meaning that strike at the heart of our priesthood commission. This book answers many questions pertaining to this sacred ordinance. For example, what does the oil represent? Why are two or more elders typically required? How do we become the hands, arms, and voice of Jesus Christ? How should we prepare to bless? A must-have for every bearer of the Melchizedek Priesthood or for anyone preparing for the priesthood. "Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church. . . " Our commission in the Melchizedek Priesthood is the same that Jesus gave to His Apostles when He sent them forth to serve: "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give."
