Sacrament of the Sick

"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. (CCC 1499)

 

Anyone may receive the sacrament of the sick at any time. Those who are suffering a serious illness or facing surgery are encouraged to receive this sacrament.

Viaticum is the name that refers to the final reception of the Eucharist for those who are near death.
