With these last Sundays of the Church’s liturgical year, we prepare for the season of Advent and look forward in hope to the coming of Christ at the end of time. With joy we await God’s breaking into human history. But are we ready? The parable of the ten bridesmaids poses that question. They are like Christians with lamps burning, waiting for their Lord. There is a delay; when he finally arrives, the foolish ones are still unprepared, and are locked out of the wedding. The suddenness of the bridegroom’s arrival requires readiness on the part of all who would join in the feast of the kingdom. How could we be so foolish as not to prepare for that joyful reunion with the Lord? The first reading calls us to seek the wisdom of God; it is so easily found. In the psalm we express our longing for God as goal of our search. Finally, St. Paul’s letter tells us why we search and why we wait expectantly: it is our longing to be with the Lord always. Our Christian hope is to share in Christ’s glory for ever.

Did you know why bells are rung by the altar server at certain times during Mass?

Before changes were introduced in the Mass following Vatican II, the words of consecration were pronounced by the priest in a very low voice – and in Latin. The faithful usually could not hear them. So the priest would hold up the consecrated host, and the server would ring the bells to draw the attention of the congregation to Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

In the “new” Mass, because the words of consecration are prayed out loud and in the vernacular, the ringing of the bells is no longer required. But they are still permitted, and many parishes retain this wonderful tradition to underscore and draw attention to the solemnity of certain moments of this great prayer: the epiclesis (or calling down of the Holy Spirit upon the gifts of bread and wine) and the consecration.

So next time, when we hear the bells rung, let us bring back our wandering minds to focus on the miracle happening before us on the altar and pay honor to our Eucharistic Lord.

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
