Twenty Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time-October 4, 2015

Happy Sunday!

Reclaimsunday.net is still filled from the visit to see Pope Francis in Washington, D.C.!  This weekend's readings focus us on the holiness of marriage, the rootedness of a lifetime vow.  We support marriage between a man and a woman.  "On the threshold of his public life Jesus performs his first sign-at his mother's request-during a wedding feast." (CCC 1613)  This sign of nuptial covenant sustain more than the couple themsves as the fountain of Grace pours out on to those they encounter.  Years ago a wedding was more simple-the couple, the consent, the kiss, the reception with family and friends.  Those marriages , many, have endured.  The need was for one another rather things.  Starting with the basics the foundation was poured.  One of the great joys in life is to be with long married couples!! The respect, the confidence of understanding forged in the fire of God's love thru it all teaches us to travel on in joyful hope in the coming of our lord while bringing part of the kingdom before us.  Let the spirit not harden our hearts but open it to love's promise!

Happy anniversary to all brides and grooms!

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.
