Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time- October 25th, 2015

Happy Sunday!

Today we hear the Gospel in which Bartimaeus calls out to The Lord who is passing in to cure his sight limitations.  It is an annoyance to those around him.  Yet his faith prompts him to call out again and again and The Lord hears him.  We grapple asking is it Enough Lord?  In the blind man's poverty his faith is the answer to the malady.  The Lord has tested him and granted the sight of faith.  This Sunday is a time to thank The Lord for the sparcity that our faith may find us calling out to The Lord of all creation.

ENOUGH

Lord, it is a slight offering, yet the best I have for you.

The disposition of my thoughts are upon your designs, that differ from this world.

Surely, there are more grand, more gold, more sophisticated offerings which are needed.  

Can you see this one extended to you from our need?  

Can you hear the pleas of those on the margins?

 Can the table of joy feed the king of the world accostumed to the finest fare?

Is it enough Lord?

Poured out for you the days have changed.  

Is it enough, Lord?

Will you be able to find us, many as we are but united in the Eucharist?

 Lord, hear our prayer that this work of our hands and hearts is enough, until we meet you face to face.

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!

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

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.
