Post Lent-e, Post Pente, Post Cruci, Post Lucy

Did anyone get the above sequence?

It's one of those rhymes that help us remember something else.... in this case, when in the church calendar we observe Ember Days.

The Wednesday and Friday following Ash Wednesday (Lent-e), Pentecost (Pente), Holy Cross Day (Cruci) and the feast of St. Lucy (Lucy...makes sense) there are days marked for special prayers and devotions for the increase in vocations to the ordained ministry.

It may be true that a vocation is in part an inner experience, but it is also true that a vocation must be something experienced by the worshiping community, so that one among us is called.

We can create a positive environment for the encouragement and support of the vocation of ordained ministry if we pray for it and value it.

Say a special prayer today, the next Ember Day, for the ordained ministers you know.... and an extra special one for those you don't (because they may not even know it yet). May God and the Spirit provide laborers for many, many harvests to come!
