Anointing of the Sick
Sacrament of Healing or Anointing of the Sick (formerly called Extreme Unction or Last Rites)
This sacrament may be received by anyone who has a serious illness, by anyone preparing for a major surgery, or by anyone in danger of death. The sacrament may be repeated if the sick person recovers after being anointed and then again falls ill or if during the same illness, the person's condition becomes more serious.
It is a privilege to be able to pray with those who are in need. This sacrament is for when people are cognizant and able to appreciate the sacrament, as well as during an emergency or even in a coma. While someone is sick, we have the opportunity to offer words of comfort: the Words of Christ!
