Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014-The Presentation of the Lord

Happy Sunday!

FOR ONE YEAR  www.reclaimsunday.net has heralded the Good News and bridged our desire to live more fully the day gifted to us from God.  Thank-you for your prayers and interest in reclaiming Sunday whose first mover is God.The readership was more than first thought , however we will continue in the coming months to promote the importance in keeping the Lord's day holy, which then carries over into the entire week.  Fr. Jeremy Driscoll, OSB writes in What Happens at Mass "Sunday has been the preeminent day for Christians to gather together in prayer, since on Sunday Christ rose from the dead, and every Sunday celebrates his Resurrection by the celebration of the Eucharist.  That celebration inevitably marks the whole day, making Sunday a day completely given over to prayer, to rest in God, to the joy of our communion with one another , to the joy of our salvation.  This is the ideal, and we should protect it from cultural encroachments and lifestyles that undermine such a sense of Sunday"  p. 14. 

Today is also the day for those consecrated, so we give particular thanks for the hidden witness of those enclosed offering continual prayers to God.  Outside one Carmelite monastery the iron archway entrance reads "Pray Always."  May we try, with the help of God's grace to be about prayer!

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.
