I see that a lot of those images of the "Sacrament" are sacriligiously being performed in the Novus Ordo.  The Communion in the hand image never ceases to anger me.  >:(

Thanks though for these.  Much appreciated.

Anointing of the sick is not a sacrament nor is it Extreme Unction

Please.  In the East, the Sacrament has always been given more 'liberally' than in the West (i.e. was given to the sick, and not just those near death).  I'll agree that quite a number of "healing services" or times when the Sacrament is employed would be illicit, and even in the post VII books, it can only be administered in danger of death (Canon 998).  Its also despicable that in some places they've scapegoated around these rules and use "blessed oil" instead of the Oil of the Sick.  This intentionally blurs the lines of the Sacrament and is certainly scandalous.

However, I think its far too much to say that Anointing of the Sick is not a Sacrament.  The times it can licitly be given are identical to the ones pre-VII.  The only difference between the new Rites and the Old is that the new makes an invocation for physical healing if it is accord with God's will (which is not something contrary to the Sacrament).

The images that i saw showed people receiving the Sacrament on the hands , not receiving the Eucharist in the hand.

My boy had a pretty serious surgery a few years ago, and he received the Anointing of the Sick -

- and with good reason, as anyone can die while under anesthesia

Before the reforms of Vatican II, the sacrament was only for those who were on the verge of dying.

A blatant falsehood (above bold) from the catherinecollege.net site. Seems that the dupes never read a Baltimore Catechism. Just another example of how people believe that everything before Vatican II was wrong or somehow done inadequately... Guess just because priests didn't go around speaking in tongues and holding communal protestant-like healing services the traditional rite of extreme unction had to be shelved. I'd say it looks like somebody tried to manufacture a "new sacrament."

Some of them are indeed questionable. But I thought that it was nice they included Eastern Catholic pics of the Rite.
