Our parish is doing Anointing of the Sick this weekend during mass. Since I am not allowed to participate or receive, how can I maybe receive a prayer or blessing? Or is that not allowed either?
I don’t know what to do if there is some sort of blessing or prayer, how do I indicate that’s why I’m there since everyone else will be in line for anointing. I don’t want to embarrass myself or make the priest uncomfortable and I’ve never been to a healing service where everyone wasn’t allowed to participate, so I don’t know the process. It’s a pretty big parish so a lot will participate since it’s cold and flu season, a lot of stuffy noses. I really would appreciate a blessing if I am allowed to have one. I’m pretty weak & and worried about the surgery c next week. Thanks to anyone who might know how this works.
