This Sunday allowed attendance to a First Mass to a newly ordained priest. It was a time to see the impact of a faith community on nurturing a vocation. Neighbors
shared how they knew the young priest since childhood. Parishioners recalled the many ways the young man participated in the life of the parish. He thanked everyone for the vestment. He is now an another Christ. The homily was preached
with attention on the life of a priest: a human man called from the community who with God's grace does extraordinary things in the cruciform shape of our Lord. Today was of God. Well every day is of God, but today seeing a man move toward his
bride, the church was a visible sign of God's will. At the end of mass he presented the crucifix to his father that had hung in his seminary room and placed on the altar at the first mass. To his mother he presented the linen that dried his newly
anointed palms the day before at his ordination Mass. Tradition holds a deceased mother's hands are wrapped in the cloth so St. Peter will see she is a mother of a priest. It was extraordinarily moving. Www.reclaimsunday.net thank
you for promoting Sunday, as a day of The Lord. May God grant you choicest blessings!
