Readers of www.reclaimsunday.net, this Sunday let us engage in acts of peace. In the face of the global conflict Saturday was unique- gathering with the faithful
for an afternoon of prayer for peace in unison with our Holy Father Francis. How may the ripple effect of Reclaiming Sunday communicate peace? By cultivating a peaceful countenance how may your face be a light to the nations? When is the
last time you lingered with a friend, a guest or even a stranger?
The families in Syria must find a purpose to face the day, for a future of hope not darkness! On April 21st, 2013 the Reclaim Sunday blog posting addressed conflict even closer-in
Boston after the Marathon Bombing. The human person wants to extend life to another even if they may have lost sight as Saul prior to his conversion. A wise priest taught this week how critical formation in 'human' development is to a pastoral
heart. Can you envision a more peaceful world? A more prayerful family? A more patient heart in the presence of one who is a challenge? Let us stop here. Let us pray to our Blessed Mother on the occasion of her birth imploring her to guide
us in the way of peace:
Full of Grace the Lord in with thee
Blessed art thou among women and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus!
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us.
