La palabra del día: Viático

Masculine noun. In Business Spanish viático is the prevention, in kind or in money, of what is necessary for the sustenance of those who make a business trip. E.g.: Los asesores de UNISTAR reciben sólo viáticos y gastos de viaje: UNISTAR advisers receive only travel and subsistence costs.
In the Catholic Church, el viático is also the sacrament of the Eucharist administered to the sick who are in danger of death; ‘viaticum’ in English. As you can see, we are also speaking about a travel. dc
