Today St. Mother Teresa was canonized placing before us a model of graceful humility. How often have we 'seen' the 'unseen', 'heard' those 'silenced' and
'touched' the 'forgotten?' How is it that a woman of God with poverty and love effected millions?? Everyone has dignity. A working mother spoke of a day when she was 'free' and still due to an overbooked schedule as the norm scoured her mind: Am
I to be at work? Or is there an appointment I have missed? What have I forgotten to be actually free on a weekend? So scheduled and programmed an experience of rest entered in bringing with it a joy misplaced by the value of productivity
at the price of time with loved ones. This was a time to be again fully present in Sunday, our day of resurrection. Leaving 'space' to welcome prayer and even our flourishing as human beings is supported by the observance of Sunday rest. If
we live Sunday as the Lord's day, a fullness of joy moves in! How has Sunday's rest kept you more fully alive? This weekend in the US is Labor Day. May we pray for dignified labor for people and the justice of rest to worship God and
love our family and friends. St. Mother Teresa bring us to the care for every soul that you lived each day! Peace!
