Poland is reportedly to phase in no shopping on Sundays
by 2020. With all the ads forBlack Friday and pre-Christmas promotions it sounds attractive to bring people back to the essence of living beyond consuming. The Gospel teaches us that the lessons Christ the King of the universe lived and died for and
brought were servant leadership to the hungry, thirsty, ill, naked and imprisoned. There was no teaching on lay away or more gifts. Christ leads with vigor of a bridegroom. In his house the poor have the firsts. If the US had shopping Monday thru
Saturday how would it impact one's life?
May we see the dignity within beyond the earthly weight of limited access. The King of the
Universe born of Mary in a manger never forgets the true mission.
He walked and met people, talked with them, ate with them and taught
them to pray. As we prepare for Advent to the most essential lesson of Christ is to love.
The King moves us to encounter a NEW way
to live. How was Sunday more opened to his kingdom come today?
