One of the hardest challenges in life is to be isolated, to feel abandoned and alone. Because of age or illness, some of our parishioners are not able to join the community on Sunday. This may be just temporary because of illness or permanent because of age. We have a Christian duty to be there for them. From the earliest days of the church, Communion was set aside for ministers to take to the homebound. This used to occur as part of the Mass dismissal. And later a tabernacle was established to store consecrated Hosts so homebound could receive throughout the week. What can be greater than to bring Christ to another.
