Mass of the Anointing

March 6, 2016

12 Noon Mass

Who should receive the Sacrament?

+ The Anointing of the Sick "is not 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.”
