Intense consciousness of sin transforms Man into
his own Judge, and that Judge is the sternest of all.
The culprit feels that there are acts in his life that he
cannot pardon himself, even if he obtained the pardon
of God and his fellow-creatures. The penalty of sin is
death In the agony of remorse, the Repentant
Soul begs to be wiped away from amongst the living.
At this stage of evolution the Soul receives the
ExTOEME Unction.
The Church of Rome never administers this Sacra-
ment until all hope of recovery has vanished : it is
given, in extremis, to all nominal members of the
Church,—men, women, and children,—often after con-
sciousness has left. A ceremony performed upon a
senseless body can, of course, in no way affect the welfare
of a soul which has just divested itself of its garments
of clay ;
yet this ceremony is impressive, and seems
to have a soothing influence upon distressed relatives.
They apparentlybelieve that the anointing has a magical
effect, and will be of great help to the Soul in Purgatory.
Even those who consider the ceremony to be a mere
act of superstition would not care to deprive mourners
of this illusion .... But it is an illusion, and hardly
anything else

of death ; but ritual functions, performed by a stranger
