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!
