Last Rites consists, if possible, of confession, Anointing, Holy Communion, and the Last Blessing, which amounts to three Sacraments plus the Blessing.

Those three sacraments - Penance, Anointing, and Communion have all been called "Last Rites" or the whole of them together… Read More

He died for everyone, including the dying people as well as those who reject Him, and if that dying person accepted Him, that person can die in peace.
