The Nativity of Saint John the Baptist

This Sunday, June 24, is the Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.  Because it is a Solemnity in "Ordinary Time", it will trump the normally numbered Sunday of the Year (in this case, the 12th Sunday, or "Sunday XII").  In two of our hymns this weekend we will recall John the Baptist proclaiming the forthcoming Christ.

Sunday X at Sacred Heart

We leave the land of Solemnities for a time and take you to the land of Ordinary Time, or Ordered Time, or as the Roman Missal calls it in Latin, the "Time of the Year".  The Latin version of the Missal (in the Ordinary Form, that is, the most current Missal) calls this Sunday (translated) the Tenth Sunday of the Year, while the English and French versions call it the Tenth Sunday of Ordinary Time.

Ascension through Pentecost at Sacred Heart

Yes, we are fortunate to live in a diocese where the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ is still celebrated on the Thursday that is 40 days after Easter and is still a holy day of obligation.
