June 1st, 2014- Seventh Sunday of Easter

Happy Sunday!

24,000 + visitors have moved over www.reclaimsunday.net!  We are encouraged by your presence here!  To first time neighbors welcome!  There is beauty all around us in the Easter season as if we re-emerge from a deep winter.  Moving into such beauty  is an awakening of love within.  Husbands and wives carry the sacrament of marriage as a commitment for entirety, life-long covenant.  Sundays put us in the center of God's love for the people he created.  Attending a wedding is a way to commit support for the newlyweds and in the moments that will compose their decades of unitive love.

 Sundays have some union of the covenant before us...Christ the bridegroom and the church his bride.  Who is not reminded of purity at First Holy communions?  Or innocence in approaching to receive the Eucharist each week?  Christ's message is salvation when we follow him!  Forgiveness is offered in the sacrament of reconciliation.  He teaches us to keep going, together, renewed by his love which we bring to others.

At a facility for the infirm there is a husband and wife in residence.  Each week if one is still in the room at the time for Holy Communion, the other will ask, "Can you wait while I get my husband/wife ?"  Unitive love.  Going out of one's self for the other. Praying for the other's soul.  Desiring to help one another on the way to Heaven.  So the wife returned this week, wheeling her husband in the wheelchair, both smiling as if they were newly weds.  We're here!  Then followed by a fountain of gratitude for coming to visit them.  

Every Sunday Christ comes for us.  He continues to yearn for the love of union, the love of completeness, the love of God.  As we move into Sundays the love of God takes hold.  

Who may we need to 'go and invite' to mass or to experience Sundays anew?  Say a prayer for all wives and husbands that their union be blessed.

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.
