LIFE TOGETHER Dear Friends, As we move further into the Easter season the focus of our attention moves towards the presence of the Holy Spirit in life. This force for good which we call the Holy Spirit is one of the persons of God, who brings forth the love between the Father and the Son. Often we can note the Spirit’s presence through, though not limited to the virtues: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord. The Scriptures during these last weeks of the Easter Season will urge us to seek these gifts of the Spirit, because in acquiring them, we produce more goodness in our own lives and grow in holiness, reflecting the good God.

A REFLECTION ON THIS WEEK’S SCRIPTURES FEAST OF FAITH The Preparation of the Altar
The altar is the focal point of our churches. It is a sign of Christ in our midst; indeed, it has been said that “the altar is Christ” (Dedication of an Altar, 4). The altar is a table “on which the sacrifice of the cross is perpetuated in mystery throughout the ages until Christ comes”; but it is also the place for a festive meal: “a table at which the Church’s children assemble to give thanks to God and receive the body and blood of Christ” (Dedication of an Altar, 4). Both these functions of the altar are clear in the rites for the preparation of the altar that follow the general intercessions, which remind us of the preparations we make at home for a festive meal. The deacon or altar servers come forward and, bowing, place a cloth known as a corporal (from the Latin for “body”) over the altar cloth. They place the chalice, the cup to be used in the celebration of the Eucharist, and the Sacramentary or Roman Missal, which contains the prayers of the Mass, on the altar. These reverent preparations help us to focus on what is about to happen: the sharing of a holy meal, a solemn sacrifice. —Corinna Laughlin, © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.
