LIVING GOD’S WORD
In his first letter to the Thessalonian community Saint
Paul says that “the day of the Lord will come like a thief
at night” (1 Thessalonians 5:2). If, however, we pick it
up and run with it at that point, perhaps something new
can be born in us.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
All Christians in both East and
West embraced the care of the sick as essential to
church life. In the West, the importance of the visit
of the priest is stressed, while in the East, the sick
person is brought to the church for a full Liturgy of
the Word. Some, such as the Armenians, even call
it the “Ritual of the Lamp,” since the oil is poured
out of the lamp by which the Word is read. This
may be why Eastern Christians sometimes anoint
the sick with this oil, since the trip to church might
kill them.
Our tradition in the West also unfolded in
monasteries, where it was possible for infirm
monks to be attended with a full and beautifully
consoling liturgy. In 950 the monks of St. Alban’s
Abbey in Mainz produced a ceremonial book that
was instantly a pastoral hit everywhere. There
were two lengthy rituals for the sick, one an extended vigil, and the other a liturgy of anointing
that included Communion under both species.
While this ritual was a house formula for monks, it
is easy to see how monks who had the care of parishes desired to serve their parishioners in a similar way. The first form included the chanting of
penitential psalms, and the second form required a
confession beforehand. Both forms included a laying on of hands, which everyone understood as
being an essential part of penance.

COLECTA SEGUNDA
22 y 23 de noviembre para Campana Católica para el Desarrollo Humano (CCHD)
VIVAMOS LA PALABRA DE DIOS
En la primera carta a la comunidad tesalonicense san
Pablo le dice que “el día del Señor vendrá como un ladrón en plena noche” (1 Tesalonicenses 5:2). Dios vendrá a robarse la vida tal como ahora la conocemos. Sin
embargo, si en ese momento tomamos la vida tal como
llega, tal vez algo nuevo pudiera nacer en nosotros.
