"Why are all the people together?" the teen asked on the trolley as it approached the peaceful protest outside the de-fund Planned Parenthood protest. The
calm mother of the special needs child calmly responded, "They are protesting." People notice when we gather whether it be for worship or to stand for life! We may ask how does the impact of Sunday shift the direction of the weeks or years?
In the second reading from today's reading Ephesians 5 we hear , "The two become one flesh... this is a great mystery." When we develop in communion we understand more fully the sanctity of marriage and the beauty
of the life of every child. People can become confused, lost, frightened and unclear in the path of life. Sunday gives us the constancy of home fires burning to communicate that there will always be a place for souls, in every circumstance. Pray
for an increase of faith and courage to follow his voice.
