March 16th, 2014-Second Sunday in Lent

Happy Sunday!

Traveling through Lent usually brings some surprise if even a little fatigue as we enter more deeply into a new way of traveling with letting go of some nonessentials.  In place of the escalated activity that fills the hours of daily life, we say, "No thank-you it is Lent."  So saying "Yes" to God during Lent strengthens us to say "No, thanks" to even another good. One observance to welcome some spiritual reading is to spend time reading.  A person asked, "What is that you are reading on JESUS?"  Even without the book jacket someone read the title on the spine of the book in front on the table.  "Jesus-A Pilgrimage by Fr. James Martin, SJ," was the reply.  So here on this trip of sorts thru a text someone had noticed and engaged.  How much more will be done when we dare to live as Christians, as catholics!  In the pages Fr. Martin takes us along to the Holy Land to the land of our beloved Jesus to 'meet the family' of his youth and later.  Could the apostles and his followers anticipate all he desired for them?  Did they grow in essence to understand the fullness of freedom he wanted for them, for us?  So this Sunday while saying yes, enjoy the closness to Jesus!  Even see the film Son of God to prompt discussion about the life of Jesus and his followers.  Or delve into a good book on the homeland of our savior.  God bless you for your visits to 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!

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.
