Second Sunday in Ordinary Time-Januuary 17, 2016

Happy Sunday!

This Sunday we experience the love of a wedding feast in John 2:1-11.  Marriage between a man and woman benefits the entire world.  Standing for an "I do!" is also in union with Christ.  Visitors to reclaimsunday.net may arrive as single, divorced, ordained, vowed religious or at some other point in formation.  This site is for you too as we trust in God's plan!  Marriage is a lifetime promise.  Having met with many couples married two, three, four, five and even six decades we stand in the presence of God who himself the premiere bridegroom performed his first public miracle at the wedding in Cana.  What keeps these couples unified through the better or for worse?  One responded: "FAMILY-F-ather, A-nd, M-other, I, L-ove, Y-ou!  ". Another noted when they married it was a more simple time with a reception and the gift of one another.  Couples did not have 'everything' before marriage so relied on one another.  Another shared their weekly 'date nights' even when raising their ten children.  For another couple marrying later they served the poor and welcomed those in need reminding them how blessed they are to have found one another.  Love is the one blessing that lives on after we have passed.  For any reader who has been yearning for marriage pray for your future spouse and implore Mary who instructed those waiting "Do whatever he tells you."  Develop a capacity for intimacy, forgiveness, empathy, understanding, education and love for life at all stages."  This month in witness for life pray for a more profound healing in our culture to respect for men and women and the children they carry, the children of our hope!  Light a candle this Sunday for engaged couples, long married couples, and those cultivating the happiness of a life lived in communion.

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.
