There is much ground for us to cover dear readers! In the past few weeks we have prayed
with the first five of the Ten Commandments. While the sixth is: ' You shall not commit adultery.' (CCC 2331). We are invited to remain with God as both men and women have " equal dignity though in a different way" (CCC 2335). The various
states of life instruct in ways of coming into the grand plan God has for a person's life full of dignity and hope as an adopted child of God! We have not a moment to lose!
This Monday is the feast of St.
Clare. In anticipation a local monastery of Poor Clare's celebrate a Triduum of masses leading up to the feast. Just before the start of the first mass one of the dear sisters required emergency medical assistance. As the EMT's and firefighters
entered thru the chapel where the laity sat someone posed praying a decade of the Rosary. As the care continued off the entry to the chapel the sister prepared for a visit to the hospital the faithful then prayed in song an Ave Maria. Then, half
prepared for an announcement of a cancellation of the mass, the most powerful witness unfolded. The celebrant emerged, vested to celebrate the sacrifice of holy mass with the concelebrant who provided CPR was as brother to his ailing sister. Poured
out are the lives of our priests and sisters and lay faithful where the 'breath of God' moves among us and thru his loved ones. In the face of the 'unexpected' the liturgy continued- unifying, healing, feeding and sending forth each to proclaim the mighty
hand of God. We continue praying for anyone in need this weekend. In today's Gospel Jesus tells "Take courage , it is I; do not be afraid" "Come."
May we be strengthened to walk as children of
the light of The Lord who asked ,
"Why did you doubt?" Enjoy this Sunday!
