Twenty Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time-October 1, 2017

Happy Sunday!

Today is the feast of St. Therese, a Carmelite nun who entered an enclosed monastery at 15 and died at 24.  Now she is known for her 'little way' of spiritual union with God.  Reflect upon a small act of kindness, love or healing you still recall today?  A small photo or quote tucked into the business man's wallet.  Or the three fresh cut garden flowers placed in a recycled jar to extend to a neighbor.  Or the embrace of peace from a friend. Or the words I'm sorry.  I was wrong.  Or the warm smile from a newcomer.  Or an extra done for no one to see.  St. Therese teaches about the complexity of a deep interior joy that leads a sinner to praise the God of all creation.  St. Therese we need your intercession.  Today and evermore.  Shower down roses that we may know you are here! Strengthen us in the fire of the Spirit!

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!

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

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.

Sunday is the day of the Lord. Let us come to Him as a family specially on this day to celebrate him and share the joy with others present in the church
