Oil Dedicated to Venerable Edel Quinn
The Venerable Edel Quinn healing oil is dedicated to the great advocate of the Legion of Mary, Edel Quinn. Despite poor health and many obstacles, she thrived in setting up Legion of Mary prayer groups in Africa.
Tradition of oils
The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves. As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power. It is God who has the power to heal. Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.
