My grandmother had a kidney removed but she also had cancer. In around April or May of this year, the doctor said he thought she had about a year to live. She is 83 years old. She is in a nursing home, and we often visit her. Someone from my family goes daily, and my aunts and uncles often visit also. A while back, maybe a month or 6 weeks ago, she requested a priest to come in, so one from our church drove about 30 minutes to get there. He heard her confession and talked with her. She felt better. This past Saturday, she again wanted to see a priest, so we tried several things but it was hard to get a priest to go there. Finally after Mass, a priest said he would visit her, and he did. She went to confession, then my family went into the room and we had sort of a condensed Mass or service of some sort and he gave her communion, then he anointed her with oil. She felt very good about this, and the priest did an amazing job.
She is mostly bedridden right now. Anyway, this morning, Thursday, she called saying she wants to see the priest again. My family is starting to wonder if this is too much. My thought is that perhaps she is being scrupulous and she constantly needs reassurance. She prays often, and will often say the rosary and watch Mass on TV. Perhaps she is finding it hard to rely on God’s compassion and love enough.
Is there any advice you can offer?
