Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

June 9th, 2013- Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

On a recent visit to a parish before the start of the liturgy the parishioners were invited to welcome one another.  This gesture invites us to consider how we are ambassadors of welcome!  Are we acknowledging those around us and looking at them?  Especially on Sunday, the Lord's Day is there an essence of the divine when we see those we have known for years or joy at meeting someone for the first time?

Today in Luke's Gospel 17:17-24 a young man is risen from the dead.  Those around are 'seized' with fear and they 'glorified God.'  Miracles happen in the presence of Jesus.  Are we opened to the transformations the risen Lord is enacting in our lives and in the lives of those around us?

A priest has suggested a word to reflect on here: doors.  What are the thresholds we have passed through and which doors may be on the horizen?  Christ is with us through it all.  Ever present, ever vigilant for our salvation.

In Reclaiming Sunday, if Summer takes you 'on the road' plan to research the local worship sites so that come Sunday we are worshipping together!  We have been encouraged to continue with our movement to Reclaim Sunday asking God to: Lead Us, Guide Us on this road.

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!

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.
