My husband experienced some kind of trauma in his lower back yesterday. By the time he went to bed he was hunching over to walk. When I woke up this morning I realized he had slept very little and couldn't walk to the door of the bedroom. Since he is unable to walk and didn't sleep last night I told him I would ask Fr. to bring him Holy Communion.
My question is this: How do I greet a priest bringing Holy Communion into my home? Thanks for any help!
Do you have a sick call set?
You should meet the priest at the door with a lighted candle and have a holder for it near your husband's bed.

Thanks! No I don't have a sick call set but I've got everything minus the linen napkin. Does that matter?
