My husband has weeks and/or monhs to live, He has stage 4 lung cancer that has spread throughout his body.
He is a Roman Catholic, but a very lax one. He has not been to Mass for about a year or more, (because I drag him at least on Easter) as far as I know has never been to confession in 27 years, although in 1998 he “told me” he had “Last Rites” before surgurey on his heart, it was after I left for the night. I don’t know if he told me that to make me happy or what?
Anyway, can I call my Parish Priest to come out on my own, even if my husband does not want it? I am more afraid of him dying in this state of sin, then to die of the cancer.
Also he “allowed” a non-demon pastor from hospice to come, but clearly told the gentleman “to keep his Protestant Religion and Jesus loves you, garbage at the door” :o I must say, the man was very kind in spite of my husband’s rudeness, needless to say I was so embarrassed.
This has nothing to do with his illness, he has had hardness of the heart for years.
What would you do in my situation, would you just go ahead and call the Priest?
