Quietly Complementary Connections

June 6 begins one of the most consequential weeks on the liturgical calendar. It’s also one of the most easily overlooked, probably because it comes in Ordinary Time and near the beginning of vacation season.

Why so important? Because it starts on Sunday with a great solemnity — the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ — and closes Friday and Saturday with the intentionally adjacent feasts of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (June 11) and the Immaculate Heart of Mary (June 12).

Thus does Holy Mother Church bind together three closely related commemorations in her heart as well as her mind.

The same could be said of the Register and its advertisers. We’re bound together by our commitment to Christ and his Church. If our advertisers didn’t share our mission — if they didn’t provide products and services that help bring Christ to the world and the world to Christ — they wouldn’t be our advertisers.

When you make a purchase from a Register advertiser, you can rest assured that you will receive an authentically Catholic good or service as you support a worthy Catholic vendor. Your patronage of our advertisers also encourages them to continue buying space in our pages, which helps the Register keep fulfilling its mission.

May your week of June 6 be anything but ordinary, and may you find exactly what you were looking for in our pages — in more ways than one.
