The Church celebrates three major feasts of Ordinary Time this month: Trinity Sunday (June 15), the feast of Corpus Christi (June 19 or 22, depending upon the diocese) and the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (June 27).

In her wisdom, the Church gives us these feast days after the conclusion of the Easter season and in the season known as "Ordinary Time" to encourage us to make this time anything but ordinary. It is a springboard to bring Easter joy to whomever or wherever life takes us.

While we prepare our family summer vacations, whether heading to the shore, traveling the country, visiting family and friends or simply enjoying time at home, we should be mindful that our faith should never take a vacation — be prepared in season and out of season, as St. Paul tells us.

With that in mind, please know that in the summer we count on your financial and prayerful support even more. Take the Register with you — whether it’s the print edition or the electronic edition — and as always, I ask that you keep us in your prayers, just as everyone associated with our endeavor prays for you.

God bless you!
