Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

Palm Sunday-March 20, 2016

Happy Sunday!

God is always extending charity.  Do we accept his gratuitous love?  Have we understood this Lent as a time set apart?  Are we yearning to live in a freedom beyond measure?  This week a priest of over 66 Years was laid to rest.  The funeral liturgy was filled and concelebrated with over 20 priests.  The family and laity had so many stories to share too. The priest had given over his entire life to God who in turn made him a spiritual father of thousands.  His holiness was a quality people could not deny.  His love for humanity knew no bounds for age, race, or status.  The military stood as honor guard to fire salutes, play the bag pipe and bugle taps and with respectful precision fold the American flag for which he courageously fought into the hands of his family.  His brother priests were near graveside recalling the love extended to them by this extraordinary priest.  As we enter the holiest week's of the year we ask what will be said of our Christian lives when we return to God?  Here at www.reclaimsunday.net we will continue to pray for your witness to the light of the Gospel.  May our high priest Jesus Christ lift us ever more closely into service for the dignity of human persons.  In Pope Afrancis' book, The Name of God is Mercy, on p. 60 he writes: "..one of the tasks of the Church:to help people perceive that there are no situations that they cannot get out of. For as long as we are alive it is always possible to start over, all we have to do is let Jesus embrace us and forgive us."

Happy Holy Week.

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.
