Spirituality

Our Chosen Names

For those who experienced the Easter Vigil last month, you couldn't help but notice the Litany of Saints. Reading the list, I wondered how these particular saints were chosen. Was it their unique gifts or simply their prominence in the Easter tradition? At the moment of confirmation, I had my answer when I realized these were the chosen names of the newest members of our Church family.

What's in a name?

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."  —Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2)

As Juliet laments her disastrous fate, she asks if a rose called by any other name would cease to be a rose. Certainly a rose would be just as beautiful if a new word was chosen to designate it from other flowers. Thus, we have to ask, how important is a name?

Service

Called by Name

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work… Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. – 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 12

As the Catholic Healthcare Guild, we hope to affect a new sense of cooperation between the various specialties that comprise the health care system.
