Frequency of Anointing

Pastoral Notes - Anointing of the Sick

6. FREQUENCY OF ANOINTING

In certain instances, the anointing may be repeated if the sick person recovers and again falls ill or if, during the course of an illness, the person's condition becomes even more serious. Anointing is properly celebrated at critical moments at the onset of serious illness and at critical moments in its progress. Hence, those who are chronically and seriously ill may repeat the anointing when in the pastoral judgment of the priest the sick person's conditions warrants this repetition. (PCS #102)
