We continue to give glory to God and praise that the tomb is empty for He is risen!
Sunday may well be 'just another day' of the week..filled with errands, work and well meaningful activities. As Catholics, however,
we are invited to enter into the Liturgical cycle and unite our lives and very breath to God's will. 'Thy will be done,' the Our Father prayer urges. How may we begin taking steps to 'Reclaim Sunday' from the world's demands? The day has
already been sanctified by the Lord. We seek only to live it in the fullness that it was intended. A day of worship, a day of glory, a day of new beginnings.
Faithful have expressed their concerns of the weight of constant access to
work 24/7 with technology, local sports schedules influencing family time when children are required to attend games/practices on Sunday, being behind on errands from the week so Sunday is spent much like any other day of the week.....(and you likely have
more stories to add here...)
HOW MAY WE RATHER RECLAIM SUNDAY AND ENTER IN AS THE LORD'S DAY?
Let's begin with prayer.
Consider the small changes you may enter into to observe Sunday as The Lord's day?
Talk about this with friends, fellow parishioners and family.
Together we will be able to witness more fully to Sunday to strengthen our life's love, friends, family, the lost, and the stranger.
If Christ walked into our midst how would he
find us observing Sunday, the day of rest and covenant he gave to us a a perpetual gift?
