What Is It Like To Receive Last Rites?

This Chinese Virus has everyone on edge. It has separated the masses. People have picked sides Some jab and some don’t. Some double mask and some don’t. The only thing we seem to agree on is that we don’t agree. What are we so afraid of? Death? Not one of us will be able to escape death. It’s the closing of one chapter and a beginning of another. Maybe you are not prepared to die. That’s a different discussion for another time. In September 2015 I had a heart block. I was in a coma for six days and when I woke up they told me I needed a pacemaker. I was weak and had to learn how to eat again. My mother was spoon feeding me applesauce. I required physical therapy in order to be able to speak again. I needed to be moved to another hospital for the procedure and right before I was to be transported I was given Last Rites.

Funny thing about coming out of a coma is what you take for granted every day. A cup of hot coffee in the morning. Feeling the fresh air from the outside. A simple moment with a pet or family member where you say nothing but just enjoy each other’s company. None of that happens when you are in a coma. We don’t realize how blessed we truly are. I was raised Catholic and a priest came to my room to administer last rites. They weren’t confident I could get strong enough for the procedure. Mother was with me during Last Rites and oddly enough I didn’t have any fear. I was completely at peace. Perhaps it was because I was truly helpless and realized I’m not in control of my life. None of us are. I believe there will come a time when you realize this and once you do you also will experience an amazing feeling of peace and closure.

Fear is not your friend. Fear leads to paranoia and stress. Fear is destructive and sadly fear is everywhere in the world right now. Wear a mask. Stay at home. Get a vaccine. Get another vaccine. Get a booster. You see how ridiculous this is? They are using YOUR fear to promote their agenda. If you are afraid then you are weak and vulnerable and you are not paying attention. Don’t let fear distract you from what is happening in this world. Question everything and demand proof because people will and do take advantage of others. Fear is the enemy. There isn’t a vaccine or a mask to protect you from fear. Faith always conquers fear. Faith restores clarity and control. Don’t let fear influence your life or decisions. Make the changes you need to make. Thanks for reading. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
