Happy Sunday!

As the Season of Advent begins next week there is a time to ask if we are in the Workshop with Christ?

Any wood workshop shows evidence of creation, repair, tools and sawdust.

A variety of sounds fill the air.

Mary must have been familiar too with the space.

It can be messy before the beauty of sandpaper smooths the wood to highlight the inner color of the grain.

As Christ the King has us in the Workshop for our souls, may we be found to encourage one another. His work is in progress with us, with one another. May our humble carpenter St. Joseph  and his Foster son teach us to work with our creative thoughts and hands to bring beauty from within to the world. 

In the USA it will be Thanksgiving this week. As Catholics with the Eucharist every day is Thanksgiving. 
Peace!

Happy Sunday!

The faithful were preparing for this week's Solemnity of All Saints on Monday and All Soul's Day on Tuesday. The church places before us a cloud of witnesses both canonized and everyday saints. For the souls of the departed we continually pray, Lord have mercy. May our days soon lead to the heavenly paradise of eternal love.

Peace!

Happy Sunday!

Today is World Mission Sunday.

Supporting the missions changes lives.

There is one story of an Ivy League graduate who gave thanks on his wedding day to his 'second mother.' It was the stranger who lived abroad who for years sent in a charity check that his poor family received. When the check arrived it allowed for a little meat and a little milk for his brothers and sisters. Eventually the stranger met the family, the boy grew and went on to graduate with a PhD, marry and settle. Small things matter. Love always matters most.

Peace!

 

Happy Sunday!

Our help is from the Lord, who made Heaven and earth.

While attending mass out of state there was a full, active participation at a 7:00 a.m mass! The pews were filled with young families with babes in arms, three religious in full habits and every generation in between. There were altar servers and a deacon with the celebrant. While reciting responses, some early morning masses may be described as hushed toned, yet it was as if everyone was lifting up their voices of prayer to the Lord! The crying infants were no distraction to the celebrant's preaching. The welcome was so evident it was like walking into heaven.

This week May we live more the communion we receive!

Peace!

Happy Sunday!

In short the message this week to ponder is, 'thank-you,' God.

For you have bestowed and are in the process of unfolding, and we give thanks. The Eucharist keeps us in your true presence.

Peace!
