The Prayer of Faith 

RCIA on Monday will be Chapter 15: The Sacraments of Healing: Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick in Michael Pennocks, "The is Our Faith." One of the opening quotes is from James 5:15
The prayer of faith will save the sick person and the Lord will raise him up again; and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven."
I note that this does not say the sick person will be healed. I have no doubt that miraculous cures happen, but I struggle with faith healers and those who speak in tongues. I am very glad, in this Chapter, to find the Sacraments of Healing are nothing, nothing like faith healing. I'm very glad we don't see Catholics dancing with poisonous snakes.
