Letter of Saint James 5:14-5:15

5:14. 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.
5:15. 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.

People who find themselves facing illness, surgery or other serious ailments are encouraged to celebrate the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. It can be celebrated more than one time. It can be celebrated in the hospital, a nursing home or in the individual's home. It is only celebrated by a priest or bishop.

Last Rites is also sometimes referred to as Extreme Unction, Anointing of the Sick, or Viaticum (if Holy Communion is received).
