“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.”98

The Anointing of the Sick “is not a sacrament for those only who are at the point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in danger of death or whose condition worsens due to sickness or old age, the fitting time for him to receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived.”130

Paragraphs 1499 and 1514, Catechism of the Catholic Church
