Ember Week

We have all noticed that the seasons are changing. Such Summer as we were allotted is behind us and Autumn is rushing in to fill its place. It has long been the custom of the Roman Church worldwide to mark the four changes of seasons in the year. From very ancient times, at roughly equal spacing through the year, we have had Ember Days, the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of specific weeks, as days to supplicate the Lord for His blessings on the new season. This 3rd week of September is just such an Ember Week. As the years wore on, the Ember Weeks became the time that Bishops ordained new deacons and priests to serve in the Church. This aspect of intercession for seminarians and clergy came to be added to Embertide prayer from the 5th century. We will have a Traditional Latin Mass on Wednesday evening at 6.00pm to mark this.
