Second Week of Lent-February 21st, 2016

 

Happy Sunday!

When we are freed of distractions we are able to increase in intimacy with Christ.  How does Sunday lead you to a closeness with Christ?  Once the fountain and light of Christ is on one does not want to return to the loneliness of the world. Check out this article on Sundays:

Standing in the fullness of truth develops closeness. Christ already knows every aspect of every person's life.  He has come to take us to himself in the joyful bond of life that is opened to new creation!  The love is inclusive and forgiving this Lent.  When an experience has been different, the body of Christ exemplifies a life united in mission. In 'Letting God Come Close,' Fr. William Barry, SJ notes a believer may fear such inner light: "People want to believe this truth, but they can also be afraid, sometimes even terrified of approaching the crucified Jesus in their imagination and looking him in the eyes." (P. 51) 

Ask God to remove fear this Sunday so we may step forward toward him. The Eucharist speaks the language of love, not foreboding.Christ embraces those far off even going out to find souls.  In the stillness look, speak and then listen.  Sunday is our day of fresh start for the journey.  Your Lord loves you and forgives you and wants us home.  Everyone, come home.  It is never. To. Late. Approach in faith. 

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.
