First, I am not a Catholic, nor a Christian. I am not arrogant enough to call myself an atheist, but I would call myself a sceptical agnostic. This question is not a “troll” - I do wish to understand others’ beliefs.
Some four years ago, I was very poorly following surgery. I was near death, and it was touch and go if I lived. Following infections, I came very near to death at least another two times in the following weeks.
I think that had I been Catholic, since my survival was very uncertain, it would have been appropriate to receive the last rites when I was first near death.
Since I was unable to move, I could not have physically transgressed. However, my mind played strange tricks and I hallucinated acts which would surely have been wrong.
My question is, would the first receiving of the last rites been sufficient, or, according to your faith, should they have been administered each time I approached death?
