Twenty Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time-October 11, 2015

Happy Sunday!

This week was filled with anticipation for Sunday!  Pope Francis commented on the restoration of Sunday's rest.  Here is the link:https://twitter.com/pontifex/status/652755504842715138  Also this week the relics of Saint Maria Goretti were venerated in the Northeast.  This young saint stands as a messanger of mercy and the transformative effect of grace when she forgave the man who attacked her.  In time he was converted during his incarceration and later went on to live as a gardner in a monastery. A well-dressed woman entered the church seeking the saint.  Noticing her large luggage on wheels she was asked, "Have you traveled far?"  Her honesty was disarming.  "No, only around the corner from the shelter."  A clarity was granted.  "Our saint is right this way!" directed the woman.  So we are reminded that all sufferings are not evident to the eyes nor known by everyone.  Sunday is our sanctuary keeping us in the light of our Lord.  May the Holy Father's words this week on Sunday and the little saint of Mercy soften any hardness of hearts.  Turn us oh Lord to your sacred heart that we may be made anew by grace.  Breathe upon us the breath of life and help us to treat one another with the dignity bestowed upon us!

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.
