Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

May 12th, 2013-Seventh Sunday of Easter

Happy Sunday!

We have entered the Year of Faith and the needs are extensive in the body of the Church, bride of her bridegroom, Jesus Christ.  Thus each member of the Church is needed to boldly engage the saving mission of Christ through the dignity of their baptism into his life. 

We may begin by asking what does it mean to have a Catholic identity? 

How does reclaiming Sunday provide a vehicle to announce the saving works of Jesus Christ?

If you are just arriving to our blog/website, welcome!  While we attempt to respond to God's will to keep Sunday's observance we are first motivated by God's grace and prompted to awaken from slumber and understand how our happiness is centered on his love.  When we are in love we want to be with our beloved, learn all we are able of this person, we want our friends to meet our loved one and our future begins to take a new form in our relation to our love.  So, it is with God in our lives.  Sunday opens us to his fountain of life saving mercy which pours out into each day of the week.  Are we opened to his love, his life, his gift to save?

A few more days in this year's Easter season...are we embracing the Ascension and are we awaiting Pentecost? 

Try, to think about Sunday in a way that invites in the possiblity of drawing more closely with our beloved, Jesus.  Is there one activity that may be repositioned to another day of the week in order that it may open space to experience the recreation of Sunday in the Lord? 

This movement is meant to keep going...sustained by God...to accept his saving grace...and deliver the message to many that thirst for worship of their creator.  Will you help and send in your ideas and forward the link www.reclaimsunday.net?

(Stay tuned for photos from the Divine Mercy Shrine, Stockbride, MA!)

Peace!

I haven't perfected my Sundays yet -- but I do refrain from at least laundry and cleaning. I do try to find something special to eat, too. Working on it!

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
