Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time-August 13th, 2017
Happy Sunday! God's plan is amazing and filled with love and light! The news headlines this week included nuclear jousting with leaders, economic uncertainties on the market and racial tensions leaving statements on the need for unity. Walking into church was a light in the darkness. The Easter candle was blazing and the baptismal font was situated front and center. The newborn was so tiny cradled by the new mom and attentive father. The entire mass was a contradiction to the tensions of the world. The couple asked for faith for their child. The priest anointed the baby and poured the waters of new life as the Godparents beemed on. It was as if God knew all would benefit as a faith community! The baby was so tiny and trusting as the parents held the tiny person over the baptismal font. Do we contemplate how our activity in the world is a sign of God's loving plan? Here at reclaimsunday.net we pray for a newness of life for each visitor. May your day be filled with the pristine innocence born of our baptism into Christ! Praying for an increase in marriage and more of us to say 'I do,' to God's incredible creation of life, faith and beginning again! Peace!

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.
