Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

August 17th, 2014-Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

We are grateful for your passage to reclaimsunday.net! Welcome!  How is Sunday a day of new beginning for us? We gather, we worship, we receive and we are sent forth with the good news! Recent global news has reminded us of the precious gift of faith and freedom to worship. We remain in prayer for Christians who suffer for the eternal truth. It moves us to encounter the deep longings of the heart.  Sunday is a day to emerge into the light of Christ who is sending us on mission.

At reclaimsunday.net a space is made for our life of integration in the risen lord and church teaching. In our saturation of newsfeed we hope to put forth some teaching where visitors may reflect, learn, discuss and give thanks to God. If a reader is of another faith thank you for visiting. By reclaiming Sunday, God who is the first mover, and to whom we entrust our lives to his will for a life of truth, goodness and dignity.

The Ten Commandments cannot be assumed as 'known' so we have reviewed each. The last four are: 7. "You shall not steal." (CCC 2401) 8. "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor." (CCC 2464) 9. "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife." (CCC 2514) and 10. "You shall not covet ... anything that is your neighbors..." (CCC 2534) Christ is the fulfillment of the law as he teaches in the Beatitudes. "The Beatitudes fulfill the promises by ordering them no longer merely to the possession of a territory, but to the Kingdom of heaven."  CCC 1716 See Matthew 5:3-12.

 

In each day we are invited to live in union with Christ, shepherd of souls, who never tires of forgiving, of embracing us as his beloved children.  How will this Sunday find us be holding his glorious wonder?  How is he calling you to himself?  Forward!  We have gratitude to share!

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!
