Summary/Abstract: Church, because of his mission, never leaves a man in a difficult situation, which is a disease or old age. It goes out to him with the sacramental assistance through the service of ministers of the Sacrament of the Anointing. This sacrament places on the priests particular moral demands concerning the granting of it. This publication presents three fundamental yet practical issues relating to granting of the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick by the priest: 1. Persons able to receive the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. 2. Granting of the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick in doubt. 3. Persons unable to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. An important objective of this publication is for the priests to have a clearly defined view on many complex situations in which they can find themselves while administering the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Then, they will be able to provide assistance on the basis of certain and specific moral requirements in this regard. Complex problems, which appear very often during the providing of the Sacrament of the Sick, require careful thinking and appropriate actions.
