Obtaining Last Rites in Hospital for a COVID-19 patient

As hospitals and healthcare workers become focused on safety and sanity (understandably so), they may not be aware of the spiritual needs of the soul – especially in cases with COVID-19 patients.

Please read and share this story of a Catholic family who had to struggle to find a priest to offer Last Rites and to get the hospital to admit the priest. It worked out well, but it was a close call. I heard this story first hand from the family so I affirm its accuracy.

Let us continue to pray for the coronavirus victims and healthcare workers who treat them. 

Vivat Jesus!
