Easter 2020 Pictorial Traditional Calendar.pdf

For the Easter Season, from https://www.liturgyofthehome.com/
A free download of a beautiful Traditional Easter Season calendar. Thank you Michaela, for sharing!
******************************************************

I created this calendar for all people, most especially children, who want to enter more fully into the beautiful Roman Catholic Liturgical year.

I have illustrated each of the Sunday gospels, the gospels for each day of Easter week, and the gospels of the Rogation days just before the Ascension. The saints feasts are also illustrated, designed, and placed such that the saints seem to be entering into the celebration of the mysteries of Christ's life with us, the church.

The borders are inspired by medieval illuminated manuscripts and the chant for the season flows throughout the calendar. It is my hope that with minimal effort on the part of parents this
calendar will help the whole family at a glance to see where we are in time and space according to the seasons of the church.

******************************************
Dear Faithful in Christ,

We are going through an extraordinary moment in the history of the Church, world and nation; you have likely heard this from many people, pundits, and news anchors. The truth is, if you are like me, you are having a hard time coming to terms with it. We are being told when and where to shop and work, what is and is not essential, and sadly enough that religion is non-essential even in the most restrictive practice. I have personally attempted several letters to you all, a most dedicated and faithful people of Christ, in order to try and provide some words of encouragement and comfort. But the truth is: these days are what they are!

We need to hold fast and batten down the hatches, for a small but good storm is upon us in this journey to the heavenly port. It has been said that this is not a punishment from God and that it is of nature, and there is truth in that, however, our good and gracious God, our Father in Heaven, is the God of nature and all of creation. Any good seaman will tell you, whether he be one of the men that ferried Jonah, or the Apostles who were sailors and fishermen upon the sea, storms happen for a purpose, if the natural course of action does not safeguard the ship. A good captain, like Jack Aubrey, could see his ship and crew through a natural storm providing for the needs of his men while engaged in battle. It seems as if the Barque of Peter now cannot even meet the needs of her crew, paralyzed by the storm which the Star of the Sea predicted. Her officers have been commanded to stand-down in the midst of a storm and not to order or conduct any life-saving actions while the enemy still attacks. I do not know much, but the one thing I know is that God blesses, and this is not a blessing.

I am sorry this is not a positive message, but a rather somber one, for we need to use this round as a sea trial to prepare for what may come. The question will arise, what we are to do to survive? First and foremost, we need to avoid the occasions of sin and danger, understanding we do not have easy recourse to the sacraments. It is necessary to understand the principles of a perfect act of contrition and the necessity to have and keep a good rule of life and prayer in our own lives as well as in our households.

We are all familiar with the three days of darkness. So, I will only say this: avoid the windows!! What are the windows? The black screens of the phones, computers, and televisions. These will be, and will become, a greater danger as time goes on. These devices will allow the most evil of things that abound in the world to enter the home which are far worse than any COVID 19. Tons of free content of the worst stuff is available, but not just that: for the media, and the hype, and the noise that comes from these windows will penetrate to the soul. They will fray and dissipate it so that it is weakened, allowing for simple faults to become more problematic, even leading to sin.

This is the time to come to understand that the kingdom of Heaven is within and not without. Prayer, reflection and resting in Christ are of great importance in these times. Please watch your own viewing and that of the household, no matter how good or safe you may think you are. It is important for us to seek recreation and not entertainment during these times. The routine of life is off, and the devil will attack and find holes in the defense of the family ship. This time has been given to us to re-evaluate our life.

It is important in the domestic church, what our households are to be, that we have routine and schedule especially when it comes to prayer. We need to wake, wash and dress in the morning and get to our prayers. We should take our mealtime together seriously, respectfully, dressed and ready for the work of the Lord, even if it is a hurry-up-and-wait operation. We should also return to prayer, as individuals and families, in the evening for thanksgiving, petition of future needs, and with contrition for missteps.

In this evaluation let us look at our houses, is the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart enthroned in a place of privilege and prayer? Do we have home altars and blessed candles, oil, salt and water? When this situation passes, let us make sure that every household of this parish has enthroned the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts. We do not need bumper sticker Catholicism with its well-intended though often superstitious approach; instead we need a true approach that not only seeks the mercy of God, but leads to repentance and reparation culminating in amendment of life and the striving for perfection, truly striving for what is better.

This is not a time to lay around half-dressed, waiting for this to pass entertaining ourselves. This is a call to action - in evaluating our conduct and how we view our lives. This is important. We have given to the world an example by our words, attitude, conduct, dress, and overall behavior, the idea that our worship of God, our Christian lives and the sacraments, are of less value than a Big Mac at McDonald’s. The sandwich you can still obtain, absolution from sin or the real Bread of Life, you can not. The world thinks we just dress up on Sunday for recreation which can be canceled like dressing up for a night out. Let us pray much in this season of the Passiontide and Easter - as this will likely go well into late spring - that light may be given to us to properly see what we can do to perfect our lives and evangelize our neighbor.
One final point, we are very limited in what we are able to offer at the parish at this moment. Please know that when an opportunity presents itself to provide more, using the same rules that apply to other essential businesses, we will do what we can to reach some, even though not all, and to do as much as safely can be done.

Please have patience with us in this situation. For now, the following is in place:
*We will keep the church open from 6 am-6 pm for visits
*That said, the church will be closed from 9-10:30 am for live streaming Masses
*If confession is necessary, there are instructions posted around the church with a number to call.
*For all other sacraments, please call the office line
*If anyone would like to speak with me, I will be available via Skype and phone. I will also spend more time monitoring the pastor’s email account to foster better communication.

Passion Week & Holy Week schedule:
*Mass from now through Spy Wednesday, including Easter Sunday, will be after the singing of the Divine Hour of Terce at 9 am.
*We will live stream the Triduum Masses as scheduled:
**Holy Thursday Mass: 6 pm
**Good Friday Liturgy: 3 pm
**Easter Vigil Mass: 10:30 pm
**We will not have the blessing of Easter baskets or sing Tenebrae
**We will keep you informed regarding Good Friday Stations of the Cross

These are hard and tough times; let us do all we can to love the Lord and neighbor. Please, above all, always remember the mantle of charity in all thoughts, words, and action. You are in the prayers of the priests here at Mater Dei - please remember us and the members of this blessed parish. These times and crosses too shall pass!

God bless,
P. T. Bauknecht F.S.S.P
