Holy Hour with Sacrament of Anointing

Jesus was the only son of God the Father.  He obeyed his Father even unto death.  His death has brought us life-eternal life with Him.  If we choose to obey we obtain the reward of being with Jesus forever in Heaven.  Let us try to give up those ideas and opinions that prevent us from obeying Jesus.
