Who should receive the Sacrament?
The Anointing of the Sick "is not a sacrament for only those 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 her/him to receive the sacrament has certainly already arrived. If a sick person who received this anointing recovers her/his health, she/he can, in the case of another 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 or for elderly whose frailty becomes more pronounced.
"Through This Holy Anointing
May the Lord in His Love
Free You From Sin, Save You And Raise You Up.”
