The Pastor's Page

Dear Parishioners, Some of you may remember from a number of years ago a column that regularly appeared in the Boston newspapers - I think it may have been the Boston Pilot - but I my not sure. It was by an English Professor from Boston College who basically gave a book report. Imagine? As a younger man then, the column appealed to me as it was always well written on an interesting topic and well sort of helped me to write my own book reports and formulate my own ideas. P. Albert Duhamel use to write I've Been Reading... Well today I find myself wanting to do much as he did by sharing with you, every now and then, what I've been reading. I have just finished a Study of the Pastoral Care of the Sick and the Order of Christian Funerals, Divine Worship and Human Healing by Bruce Morrill. A good part of my time in the course of a week focuses on ministering to those who are sick and home bound and to those who are dying and have passed away and their family and friends who mourn their loss. The book was a good summary of contemporary ideas and problems with health care and the response we make as a Catholic people. Our religious rites, the Pastoral Care of the Sick, which includes the anointing of the sick, and the order of Christian Funerals, seek to bring healing and hope to those who suffer and mourn and have passed away. We have seen these very human events played out before us in the past few weeks. I think it timely that we think on these things.. We need to make a distinction between the curing of illnesses and injuries that come at the hands of doctors and nurses and the whole host of caregivers who are part of the medical profession, and the healing

that comes from anointing with sacred oil, the prayer of faith and the imposition of hands. "...Call for the priests of the Church and they will anoint them, pray over them and... the prayer of faith will save them and the Lord will raise them up and their sins will be forgiven them." And sometimes the Lord will bring about a cure even... Have you ever noticed how the medical arts can fall far short of the healing that is really needed. Doctors and nurses will readily tell you that. What really helps is an anointing with holy oil, within a community of faith... lead by a priest, to help bring about the healing so longed for... not always a cure but a healing love with Christ present and family and friends. In short we need to be there for each other with this powerful sacrament. The Order of Christian Funerals similarly calls for the presence of the community of friends and family at the wake, at the funeral and at the committal. Death can not be denied. It is sad... always sad. Death is mourned by those who love... No one loves us more than Christ himself. We remember in the funeral rites what Christ did for us and the one who has died. We remember the one who has died by how we live... enriched by their love and example. Yes, I've been reading about how we praise God when faced with suffering and death and the need for human healing... It touches all. Always remember you bring healing to others by your presence, your love and your prayers. Older and younger that is part of your mission as it is part of mine. Our world, our city, our parish, our families or hearts need that healing... and the wonderful cures of medicine. Let us not forget the mystery of our faith... Christ has died and risen. Let us rejoice and be glad! God bless you, Fr. Linehan

MUSIC NOTES

Fifth Sunday of Easter

Prelude Opening Hymn Offertory Hymn Communion Hymn Anthem Closing Hymn Postlude

Schmücke Dich, O Liebe Seele - G. A. Homilius #75 Jesus Is Risen #464 Love One Another #608 I Have Loved You Laudate Dominum, K 339/v - W. A. Mozart #458 Love Divine, All Loves Excelling Fantasy in F - Johann Ludwig Krebs

This week, we read and sing of both God's love for us (and how we should share it with one another) and his everlasting kingdom. All of our hymns today fit one of these two themes, and our anthem certainly does. The anthem, "Laudate Dominum" comes from Mozart's "Vesperae Solennes De Confessore" (1780)--a larger collection of settings of the 5 psalms and Magnificat appointed for singing at the service of Vespers, one of the major offices of the day (some traditions call this evening mass `evensong'). The words come from Psalm 117, known for being the shortest psalm: Laudate Dominum, omnes gentes; laudate eum, omnes populi. Quoniam confirmata est super nos misericordia ejus, et veritas Domini manet in æternum. Gloria patri et filio....etc. Praise the Lord, all you nations; Praise him, all you peoples. For his merciful kindness is great toward us and the truth of the Lord endures for ever. Glory to the Father and to the Son...etc.

It's written for solo soprano (sung today by our cantor, Suzanne Karpov), chorus, and orchestra. If you'd like to hear the entire Mozart Vespers with orchestra, consider coming to my conducting recital on May 4 at 3 PM in Marsh Chapel at Boston University. It's sure to be quite the event!

Annual Baby Shower

THANK YOU to all the parishioners who so generously supported the "Respect Life Baby Shower" held last weekend. Many beautiful and necessary baby clothes and items were donated and have been delivered to the Pro-Life Office to be distributed to mothers in need. Many of the baby blankets had been knitted or crocheted by girls in our C.C.D. program. The monetary collection amounted to $1,553. Once again, St. Margaret Mary Parish has risen to the occasion. God bless you all!

Second Collection This Weekend

This week's second collection supports three important national Catholic missions. The Home Missions collection subsidizes the evangelization and formation activities of mission diocese. The Black and Native American collection strengthens evangelization and outreach which would otherwise be in danger of disappearing among the Black, American Indian, Eskimo and Aleut communities of the United States.
