Happy Sunday!

Gratitude is so life giving that this Sunday we would like to thank all those participating in www.reclaimsunday.net!  These past few months our 11,000 plus visitors have fortified the initial out reach begun as a graduate class project.  In the anticipation of the start of the Advent season let us turn in the coming week to thank God for his many blessings reaching everyone.  As we respond to his invitation to love we recognize with a clarity that the pre-season marketing of our times has more to do with purchases and less with the endless love that may not be bought.  Our plan this season is to 'try' to unite, reclaiming Sunday, as we explore our faith, the traditions and the eternal truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  Can we invite someone to our gatherings who otherwise may not be there to include them into our joy and life in the Christian life?  How may we communicate our pledge of faithfulness to our loved ones outside the commercial realm?  Have we made time to call someone who has had a loss this year, illness or visited with those who are often alone?  The Catechism urges us to awaken..."They have to give everyone a public example of prayer, respect and joy and defend their traditions as a precious contribution to the spiritual life of society."  (CCC 2188)  How will this year be different by reclaiming Sunday??  This is a beautiful opportunity to Witness to all Christ has done in our lives to lead us more closely to his sacred heart!  So may God bless you today and always.  If this is your first visit here know we are praying for you.  Join us at a Catholic church this week! 

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!

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

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.
