ABSTRACT
The article studies the provisions in Church Law applicable to danger of death. It states that the canons making special provisions in danger of death refer only to the celebration of some sacraments. The definition of danger of death is presented as a circumstance wherein there is reasonable possibility of imminent death. The author stresses the importance of contacting the ordained in danger of death situations and that lay persons should be properly prepared, in such situations, to celebrate the sacraments of baptism, Holy Eucharist, and marriage.
