The dictionary defines the word ordinary as something that is customary, usual or familiar. What is familiar or common to Christians is the weekly celebration of the paschal mystery. This mystery recalls the life, death and most importantly the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Since Vatican II the Sacrament of Anointing is no longer referred to as the Last Rites. This important Sacrament is now called the Sacrament of the Sick. A person may receive this Sacrament whenever they are ill or preparing for a hospital stay, for whatever reason.
Reception of this Sacrament is no longer connected to death, but rather is meant to strengthen us in our moments of illness.
Congratulations to our First Communion and Confirmation students and their families as we the close another grace-filled year in our Autism Program. Thank You, Margaret Andreozzi, Father Gagne, and the many teachers for their hard work and devotion.
The accounts of the resurrection talk about seeing and believing, and not seeing Jesus. The garden account tells us that Mary did not recognize Jesus; she thought he was the gardener. Thomas could not bring himself to believe that he was alive, and had appeared to the others. A week later, he saw and believed. The disciples on the road to Emmaus did not recognize the stranger that walked along with them and entered their conversation. And the gospel tells us; they recognized him in the breaking of the bread.
