Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

October 6th, 2013-Twenty Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

Our favorite day of the week, Sunday reflects the newness of life with Christ!  Reread a section of the Catechism 2174:

"Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week.  Because it is the "first day," the day of Christ's Resurrection recalls the first creation.  Because it is the "eighth day"  following the Sabbath, it symbolizes the new creation ushered in by Christ's Resurrection.  For Christians it has become the first of all days, the first of all feasts, the Lord's Day-Sunday."

Have we stopped to consider who are we following?  Are the priorities of our life reflective of the light of the Risen Christ? 

Whether you have just begun Fall classes, or have retired, whether you have worked within the Church or been an at home parent, whether the best news arrived on your doorstep this week or whether you are in bed convalesing Sunday is an OPPORTUNITY to enter into a closeness with Jesus Christ!  How will you begin the day tomorrow that communicates that you are in relationship with Christ or are desiring a more close union with him?

It is never to late to turn to Christ! Pope Francis has recently made reference to the Church as a field hospital.  Sunday worship brings us into contact with the divine physician, Jesus Christ.  Will you join us this Sunday at a local parish?  Help pass on the message:  www.reclaimsunday.net.

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.
