True or false?: The effect of physical healing depends on the intensity of the prayers for the sick person.What do you think? Vote in the poll in my sidebar.
As for the previous poll, here are the results:
- True or false?: The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, when administered to a person at the point of death, is called Viaticum.
- True: 13 (46%)
- False: 15 (54%)
- FALSE, cf. CCC 1517: Like all the sacraments the Anointing of the Sick is a liturgical and communal celebration (Cf. SC 27), whether it takes place in the family home, a hospital or church, for a single sick person or a whole group of sick persons. It is very fitting to celebrate it within the Eucharist, the memorial of the Lord's Passover. If circumstances suggest it, the celebration of the sacrament can be preceded by the sacrament of Penance and followed by the sacrament of the Eucharist. As the sacrament of Christ's Passover the Eucharist should always be the last sacrament of the earthly journey, the "viaticum" for "passing over" to eternal life.
Please Lord, if I am near death, may time permit me to receive your provisions for my journey from this life to the next!
