madrikh (and having the parents do the actual baptism) and modify vidui for
sacrament of the sick (aka last rites), but I'm stuck on annointing and
communion rituals for my Catholic patients (majority of patients). I try my
best to farm out those rituals to other Christian chaplains when possible,
but on-call, the hospital holds that it's my responsibility. I haven't found
