Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

July 28th, 2013-Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinay Time

Happy Sunday!

Today we are preparing for the arrival of the Lord's Day tomorrow! 

This week our 5,000th visitor crossed the threshold of www.reclaimsunday.net

There is an interest for the faithful in finding ways to reallocate time to be centered on our identity as Catholics rather than the barrage of modern culture's definition of happiness largely influenced by consumerism and round-the-clock work.  On June 16, 2013 Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly ran an article on: In Soccer Mom Era, Sports and Faith go Head-to-Head-http://www.osv.com/tabid/7621/itemid/11002/In-soccer-mom-era-sports-and-Faith-go-headtohea.aspx  Note the accompanying box: 'Reclaiming a Day of Rest.'  We may ask if we are not teaching the next generation, and our loved ones the centrality of Jesus in our lives what are we teaching by our example?  If we are in constant motion, constant plug-in, or even constant distraction for a seemingly purposeful reason what or rather who are we unable to attend to?  How may Sunday help in redefining the value in the human person?

Luke 11 teaches us the words of The Lord's Prayer and how to draw more closely to the heart of our savior.  Let us ask, seek and knock at his door as we unify to Reclaim Sunday together.

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.
