Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

Sunday 15th, 2013-Twenty Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

How are we thinking anew about Reclaiming Sunday?  When the www.reclaimsunday.net blog posting on August 25th, 2013 encouraged looking up the date of one's Baptism it was a joy to read this week on September 11th when Pope Francis prompted us to do the same and to extend our praise to God for the gift of our Baptism!  Have you been able to locate the date of your Baptism?  How is reclaiming Sunday an opportunity to grow in our relationship with God?  In Luke's Gospel this week Luke 15: 1-32 we are reminded of the lengths God goes to reach those away from his love, his reconciliation, his union...He leaves the 99 to go after the 1 lost sheep.  The numbers stand on end as apart to those who only add by numerical terms.  It is the same reign which welcomes and dines with sinners.  God invites us into a life of solidarity.  How have you experienced this on the road of faith?  Take time to pray an Our Father and thank a priest for reaching out.  May we grow in our prayers for fortitude to Reclaim Sunday with the help that comes alone from God.

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.
