Anointing of the Sick/Originally posted May 7, 2007

It was May 2 around 9:00 pm, a fellow Minister of the Holy communion called me, I was quite annoyed because it was time to relax and eventually retire for the day. I have not yet uttered a single word when he said, bong can we call Father Nards? (Our Parish Priest) I asked him? for what reason? And he told me that there is a gravely ill woman and she might go anytime. I thought about it for quite sometime because it was late in the night already and I don't want to disturb our Priest.

However, we went to the her house upon knocking on their gate we were meet by her son and we introduced ourselves as Extra Ordinary Ministers of the Communion . Then I asked him "Can we see your sick mother?" he said yes, we went inside and saw a very thin old woman lying on her bed. She can't talk anymore because she has cancer on her throat but she can still recognize. I looked closely at her, there was a sudden gush of emotion on me because I knew her face. I always see her attending Mass or Bible service and whenever she in the church she always caught my attention because she was always alone on the farthest pew, she was alone but she was constantly following the ceremony whether it was Mass or Bible service.

So we went home and I decided to text our Priest and told him that there is a gravely ill woman sick with cancer, she's near death, I further told him if it is possible for him to gave the last sacrament that night or early morning. after a few minutes I got a reply and he said. I am ready now, so I texted him back and said Father I will fetch you now. I hailed a tricycle and went to the church when we arrived Father was already prepared and we went to the house of the sick lady. Immediately Father put his stole and said: I am the Priest I will gave you the Anointing of the Sick .

It was so touching seeing the Priest laying his hand on the sick and praying at the same time. After Father was through we accompanied him back and said thank you very much Father.When I was going back home I said to myself thank you dear God for calling us and making us an instrument of your grace...
