When a Catholic Priest is called - Extreme Unction

Post  TrollAng on Sun Oct 09, 2011 4:13 pm

The Sacrament of Extreme Unction
Catholic writing of James 5:14-15 >
"Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith shall save the sick man: and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he be in sins, they shall be forgiven him."
1. What is the Sacrament of Extreme Unction?
Extreme Unction is the Sacrament which gives health and strength to the soul and sometimes to the body to persons who are in danger of death.
The words "Extreme Unction" mean "last anointing." In Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders, the body is anointed with holy oil.
In the Sacrament of Extreme Unction the body is anointed for the last time. Hence the name.

2. How is Extreme Unction given?
After praying over the sick person, the priest anoints (makes the Sign of the Cross with the Holy Oil) on the person's eyes, ears, nostrils, lips, hands, and feet.

3. What does the priest say while anointing the sick person?
He says: "Through this holy anointing, and by His most tender mercy, may the Lord pardon you what sins you have committed by sight (hearing, speech, and so on)."

4. What does Extreme Unction do for your soul?
The Sacrament of Extreme Unction --
a. Gives you more Sanctifying Grace;
b. Helps you to bear your sufferings;
c. Strengthens you against the temptations of the devil;
d. Sometimes gives back your health;
e. Takes away temporal punishment due to sin;
f. Prepares you for immediate entry into Heaven.

5. Does Extreme Unction take away sin?
Extreme Unction takes away --
a. All your venial sins
b. even your mortal sins if you are unable to confess them but are truly sorry for them.

6. Who can give Extreme Unction?
Only a Catholic priest.

7. Who can receive Extreme Unction?
Any Catholic in danger of death from sickness, old age or accident not only can, but should receive Extreme Unction. However, it may not be given to infants or to anyone who has never had the use of reason.

8. When should you receive Extreme Unction?
Whenever the sickness or accident is so serious that it could cause death.
Examples: Pneumonia, heart attack, a serious car accident.

9. How often can you receive Extreme Unction?
Only once in the same danger of death. However, if a new danger arises, you can receive it again.

10. What should be done in case of sudden death?
Send for a priest right away, because Extreme Unction may be given even after a person is apparently dead.
Even when a person displays all the usual manifestations of death, the soul may still not have departed from the body. Therefore, the Church allows Extreme Unction to be administered after "death" has occurred.


11. Why is it wrong to wait until the sick person is unconscious before sending for the priest?
Because the sick person must be conscious in order to benefit the most from the Sacrament.

12. What kind of sin is it to deprive a sick person of Extreme Unction?
A mortal sin.

It often happens that a convert is the only Catholic in a family. If this is your case, therefore, you should tell your relatives to send for the priest if you are ever in danger of death.

13. What should be done before the priest comes to anoint the sick person?
Spread a white cloth on a table beside the bed. Then put a crucifix, two blessed candles, a bottle of holy water, a glass of drinking water, a spoon and some cotton on the table. A member of the family, carrying a lighted candle, should meet the priest at the door and lead him to the sickroom.
No one should talk to the priest, for he probably has the Holy Eucharist with him. Everyone should kneel down when he enters.
If you do not have the above items, call the priest anyway.

14. What does the priest do when he enters the sickroom?
First, he says some prayers, sprinkles the sick person with holy water and hears his Confession.
Then he gives him Holy Communion and Extreme Unction, and finally, the Last Blessing.
All of these together are called the Last Sacraments or Last Rites of the Church. (Everyone else leaves the room while the priest hears the sick person's Confession.)

PRACTICAL POINTS

1. Do not worry that a sick person will be frightened by the priest, because Catholics should always be glad to see the priest in order to receive the comforts that only the Sacraments can bring.

2. If you are going to be a patient in a non-Catholic hospital, tell your parish priest which one you are going to and how long you expect to be there. Also, tell the doctors and nurses that you are Catholic and that they should send for a priest if you become critical or serious.

3. Catholics should be buried in Catholic cemeteries. Tell your relatives to see your parish priest about your funeral. Or, make the arrangements yourself ahead of time.

4. Catholics are forbidden to have their bodies cremated, except in case of a serious public necessity. The Catholic burial service is denied those who give orders to have their bodies cremated.

On the subject of priests, etc., I remember from the contemporaneous news reports comments about the parents spending a lot of time with the priest and one relative -- was it one of their parents? -- saying that they'd never known them to be at all religious or even regular churchgoers. Mind you, to be fair, people at times of stress often turn to the Church for help and if for no other reason, an anchor to their past and happier times.

.

The child of five years, or perhaps even four, who has received proper religious training from his parents might well fulfill the conditions for the reception of the Viaticum. And it should be noted that the Code not only permits but even commands that the Holy Eucharist be administered in such a case (Can. 852, § 2).

Again, from a memory of contemporaneous news reports, didn't the priest at PdL say something to the effect that he felt he'd been 'used'?

Apparently so, well according to the Daily Mail

"The Portuguese priest who comforted Gerry and Kate McCann in the days after Madeleine vanished last night said he had been deceived, it has emerged.

According to reports, Father Jose Manuel Pacheco claimed he had done nothing wrong and was simply "supporting two lost souls."

But, bizarrely, he also appeared to say he had been the victim of some form of deception.

It has also emerged Father Pacheco was apparently called in to see his superior, Algarve Bishop Manuel Quintas and warned about his behaviour.
In the days after Madeleine vanished on May 3, the McCanns, both 39 and devout Catholics, frequently sought refuge at the priest's church.
They became so close to Father Pacheco, he gave them the keys to the tiny building so they could go in to pray whenever they liked.
However, his friendship with the couple appeared to spectacularly backfire after police became convinced Kate had told him she had killed her daughter during confession.
But he has vowed to take whatever she had said to the grave, despite being quizzed by detectives.
Father Pacheco appeared to virtually vanish from the public eye in the weeks after Gerry and Kate were made arguidos - or official suspects.
The pair left Portugal without saying goodbye and handed the church keys to another clergyman.

Just had a further look on the priest (the above article was in October 2007 and in December he denies it.

"PRAIA DA Luz church is receiving the image of Our Lady of Fátima on Monday, December 18, in a special visit to the region and this is the reason why ribbons and images of Madeleine McCann have been temporarily removed from its interior, according to father José Manuel Pacheco, the local catholic priest .

Praia da Luz’s community “has not forgotten the little British girl and special prayers are still being held every Friday,” father José Manuel Pacheco told The Resident.

The catholic priest was reacting to reports in the UK’s Daily Express in which he is said to have “ordered the removal of scores of green and yellow ribbons which were put up as a symbol of hope in the days after Madeleine vanished”. The British newspaper quotes a “close friend to the priest” as saying that the latter “can’t even hear the Madeleine case mentioned without becoming irate.” A statement that father José Manuel Pacheco describes as “barbarity” and a “lie”. “I do not know who that ‘friend’ might be, but I doubt such person is my friend”, he told The Resident.

Church key

With regards to the key to Praia da Luz church that the McCanns were given after Madeleine went missing, so that the couple could pray in privacy, “that was a decision made by the Conselho Pastoral and I only knew about it three days later”.

Father José Manuel Pacheco said: “Madeleine McCann’s parents know that we support them and that is the most important thing. The family kept very close and good relations with the church and its representatives in Praia da Luz”.

he is the representative of the mccann catholic faith yet despite Kates attachment to his lovely little church in PDL he barely figures in her book. So something has happened to diminish his significance imo.

In her "novel" Kate insults the entire Portuguese community (apart from the "support" given by "locals" - aka peasants). It is all Hayne Hubbard at the little church in PDL. So poor José Manuel Pacheco is ignored also. Note that John Hill (Manager of Ocean Club) doesn't get much of a mention although he apparently arranged Bell Pottinger and a large amount of support for the McCann parents.

The McCanns will be particularly disappointed at reports that Jose Manuel Pacheco, the Roman Catholic priest who befriended them, has ordered every trace of the Madeleine appeal removed from his church of Our Lady of the Light.

The tiny white-washed building became a focal point of the Find Madeleine campaign, and was later searched by police looking for the body.

But Friends of Fr Pacheco said he could no longer bear to discuss the case.

“Even when his friends broach the subject he immediately changes it,” said one.

“He says it is an extremely unpleasant situation and the McCann family only ever brought him problems.

“He even told one friend they ruined his life.

“There are two completely different Pachecos, the one before the McCanns and this shell of a man after the McCanns. He is a nervous wreck.”
