GET READY
The Letters of Paul to the Thessalonians are among his earliest
writings, and are driven by his belief and the belief of the entire
early Christian community that the return of Christ was imminent.
Therefore, to devote time or attention to anything else was foolish.
As time progressed, this fervor receded a bit. Today we may
wonder, when we hear these readings about the coming end-times,
if we should take them to heart. What should we do when we hear
that the day of the Lord will come upon us “like a thief at night”? (1
Thessalonians 5:2) Does this mean we are to stop our long-range
goal setting, get rid of our yearly calendars and planners, or stop
putting money in the college education fund? Of course not. What it
does mean is that we need to change our lives, living like children
of the light and illuminating the world around us with the light of the
gospel. Then, on that day, when the details of our daily living
become unimportant, we will be ready to find our peace and
security in Christ Jesus.

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.
Prayers For The Sick
