Sacraments for the Sick and
Please Read Carefully!
In order for the faithful people of God to
receive all the sacraments in times of
serious illness, injury, and / or near the time of death, it is
extremely important to notify the pastor as soon as any of
these events occur. Sacraments may only be celebrated by
the living; they cannot be celebrated after death.
Furthermore, the sacrament of reconciliation can only be
celebrated when a person still has the ability to communicate.
Even more importantly, receiving communion as viaticum,
which is what Last Rites are, is only possible while a person
is still able to swallow, even if only a small piece of the Body
of Christ, or a drop of his Precious Blood.
Please do not wait to inform the pastor of loved ones’ serious
health condition until death is imminent, but contact him at
the onset of any serious event, so that they may receive all
the sacraments they need, as often as they need them, until
either recovery or death occurs. Sometimes things happen
very quickly, and the timely celebration of sacraments is not
always possible.
A person can be anointed even if
unconscious, but the sacrament of anointing of the sick does
not constitute Last Rites by itself. It can be part of that
celebration if needed, but to receive communion as viaticum
is to receive Last Rites, and every measure should be taken
to see that this can be done.
