Happy Sunday!

 

Merry Christmas to visitors to reclaimsunday.net!

Today's feast day of the Holy Family has us praying for the protection of family life the cell of the domestic church.  Mary and Joseph had many hardships yet God had blessed them with one another.  The family is where the seeds of faith may be planted.  As Mary and Joseph embody fidelity and faith in the face of the unknown may we grow to always cast our cares on the lord.  Let us heal any divisions, draw the forgotten near, utter prayers for our abandoned neighbors, for couples enduring separations, illnesses or chill.  We learn today that God chose to enter the world in the womb of our Blessed Mother who by providence was given a foster father for Jesus and a husband to protect and provide.

 While in line at the market a new father carried his two week old son in a carrier.  Noticing a few smiling strangers were be holding the baby's face he added, proudly, "It is our first trip to the market!"  So he was 'on mission' and others appeared to notice!  A first of many outings as was the Holy Family's mission.  May the coming new year have us out on mission carrying the love of God with us!  In times we are 'waiting' let us pray for families and joy in expanding care to God's family.

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!

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.
