Things to consider when a loved one is ill

 

In case of grave illness . . .

 

1514 The Anointing of the Sick "is not a sacrament
for those only who are at the point of death. Hence,
as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger
of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for him
to receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived."
130

 

1515 If a sick person who received this anointing recovers his health, he can in the case of another grave illness receive this sacrament again. If during the same illness the person's condition becomes more serious, the sacrament may be repeated. It is fitting to receive the Anointing of the Sick just prior to a serious operation. The same holds for the elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced.

Article 5 - The Anointing of the Sick

 

 

Anointing of the Sick
and Viaticum

 

"By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill
to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them
up and save them. And indeed she exhorts them
to contribute to the good of the People of God
by freely uniting themselves to the Passion
and death of Christ."
98

 

 

The special grace of the sacrament of the
Anointing of the Sick has as its effects:

  • the uniting of the sick person to the passion
    of Christ, for his own good and that of the
    whole Church;
  • the strengthening, peace, and courage to
  • endure in a Christian manner the sufferings of   
    illness or old age;
  • the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able
    to obtain it through the sacrament of Penance;
  • the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the
    salvation of his soul;
  • the preparation for passing over to eternal life.
