Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

November 3rd, 2013-Thirty First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

Welcome to our site www.reclaimsunday.net!  This is a month of remembrance of our beloved deceased and with such a beautiful Holy Day this past week, All Saints Day!  As we grow into our relationship with Christ we pause to see how are loving more?  forgiving more? living more? Continually people express how 'busy' they are with little time to savour the little things such as a home cooked meal, spending time with friends and enjoying simply unscheduled free time.  A common theme is people are 'adding more activity' into their days to the point of compromising faith, fidelity and freedom.  At no cost we are invited to Reclaim Sunday!  Now granted given that Christmas pre-season sales which have already appeared, will try to convince us that our identity will be in what we have....Christ invites us to recognize our true identity as adopted sons and daughters of the most high God.

In a prior 6.6.12 General Audience, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI:

even referred to the press of work and the health of, "By defending Sunday, one defends human freedom."  So we may ask how am I defending Sunday and thus the dignity of humanity?  In a Papal tweet @Pontifex on October 17th Pope Francis prompted: "Our prayer cannot be reduced to an hour on Sundays.  It is important to have a daily relationship with the Lord."  Surrounded by such an abundant love, it moves us to live out the same!  

Thank-you for continuing to visit this site as we join together to Reclaim Sunday! 

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.
