Thirty Second Sunday in Ordinary Time-November 12, 2017

Happy Sunday-

This week is Vocation Awareness Week.  More specifically here is a call to the catholic priesthood although all Christians are called to the Vocation to love.  A young Seminarian provided a witness mentioning the generosity of his parents to foster vocations.  With two sons and one already a priest they will not be grandparents in the biological way.  With two sons as priests they will be grandparents to thousands Thru their son's spiritual Fatherhood.  

 

On Sunday we allow our prayers to focus on vocations to the priesthood. It is common for the faithful to have a close affinity to their parish priest.  He feeds them the bread of angels, forgives their sins, anoints their sick, baptized the young/old in the living waters of baptism and buries the dead.  He steers them away from danger and guides them into the ways of truth.  He does not lack children rather is both father and grandfather to preborn to those who lay dying.  

The faithful may give an opinion to the pastor, but let no one speak against the heart of their good shepherd.  Immigrant or 60 years married the priest is a missionary who traverses lands known and unknown.  He counsels the doubtful and navigates budgets while expected to mix with scholars and poor alike in a day's service to God.  While 1,000 may be one's acquaintances only one will be the catholic priest.  Any catholic will be able to attribute how God entered their lives thru the relationship with the spiritual Fatherhood of their priest.  Many may advise in life in ways of finance, law, architecture or education but only thru the catholic priest will one be fed the Eucharist, be anointed before eternal life or hear our sins in the confessional.  This Sunday join www.reclaimsunday.net in a prayer for every priest that has been or will be!  God hear our loving care for the call and grant us more courageous priests to guide us in the way of the peace of the risen Lord, Jesus Christ!

Bless every priest and Seminarian with the sustenance of grace to endure the trials of this life so that he be within the lineage of generations of the spiritual Fatherhood of a man of God!

Mary, blessed Mary who did believe in the word of the Lord intercede to your son to bless us with an increase in holy vocations to the priesthood!

Amen.

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!

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.
