Twenty Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time-October 9,2016

Happy Sunday!

'Be still and know that I am God.' (Ps 46)

We wait in the stillness of Sunday.

Sue Monk Kidd, wrote in: 'When the Heart Waits,' about the term 'yeasting' referring to the time when dough rises.  "To create newness you have to cover the soul and let grace rise." (P.43). "And somehow the transformation you knew would never come, that impossible plumping of fresh life and revelation, does come.  It manifests itself in unseen slowness." So is the waiting of an engaged couple.  Pope Francis writes in Amoris Laetitia: 'For this reason they should be strongly encouraged to discuss what each expects from marriage, what they understand by love and commitment, what each wants from the other, and what kind of life they would like to build together." (P. 133-134)

During the wait a more true self emerges on which to build a life together.  Slow down.  Leave time Unscheduled on the calendar.  Rediscover the silent love of the heart.

'Be still an know that I am God.'

Wait in hope, this Sunday!

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!
