When is the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick best received?

Mission Lab

This Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is best received as soon as possible when there is danger of death from sickness or old age.

This sacrament is for all who are seriously ill and not only for those near death. It is important to note that the sacrament can be repeated for persons who get well and become seriously ill again. The priest should be called early to a sick person’s side so that he can help the person to sincere sorrow for sins.
