Welcome to www.reclaimsunday.net 2014! Nearing 14,000 visitors we celebrate the interest in placing Jesus Christ at the center of our lives. As we travel together we receive the Christmas
season in its fullness. When attempting to locate Christmas plants a couple of days after the 25th only after three stops were the last remnants found! It was evident that to the market Christmas was over and making way for Valentine's day! Such
gratitude resulted in having our reclaimsunday website along with the Christmas liturgical calendar. When others are taking Christmas decorations down, today we are invited to keep them up as we celebrate Epiphany Sunday!
Let's read from the Catechism:
"Jesus was born in a humble stable, into a poor family. Simple shepherds were the first witnesses to this event. In this poverty heaven's glory was made manifest...To become a child in relation to God is the condition for entering the kingdom. For
this, we must humble ourselves and become little...Only when Christ is formed in us will the mystery of Christmas be fulfilled in us." (CCC 525-526)
"The Epiphany is the manifestation of Jesus as Messiah of Israel, Son of God and Savior of the world.
The great feast of Epiphany celebrates the adoration of Jesus by the wise men (magi) from the East, together with his baptism in the Jordan... In the magi, ...the Gospel sees the first fruits of the nations who welcome the good news of salvation through
the Incarnation." (CCC 528)
How are we preparing to reach out this Sunday and in the days to come?
