Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

November 29th, 2015-First Week of Advent

Happy Sunday!

Oh the sweet relief of Advent!  Yes, as the world escalates the consumerism of Christmas we, once again, are led to the life giving waters of faith in this season of preparation of holy waiting.  We wait in preparation of letting Christ deeply into our bodies, our actions and every relationship of encounter.  Mary and Joseph had so little and yet were chosen to raise the son of God in the blessed union of marriage.  How are our bodies prepared for the seed of God?  Men, do you listen to every woman in your lives as Joseph did Mary?  Women, do you trust strong silence in the men in your lives as Mary did Joseph?  As we prepare for the Jubilee year of mercy do we Really believe that in the poverty of our lives God can generate a family beyond measure?  It could sound like folly unless you are baptized, when all of it unites us to heaven our ultimate destination! If you are not baptized welcome to www.reclaimsunday.net!  We are grateful for your interest in Sunday, our day of resurrection!  We hope you find your way to the nearest Catholic Church!

At Family gatherings stories are retold of deceased loved ones and of special Advents.  What will be the narrative that will follow each of us?  O come, O come Emmanuel!

Peace!

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.
