Reclaim Sunday Weekly Blog

September 8th, 2013-Twenty Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

Readers of, this Sunday let us engage in acts of peace.  In the face of the global conflict Saturday was unique- gathering with the faithful for an afternoon of prayer for peace in unison with our Holy Father Francis.  How may the ripple effect of Reclaiming Sunday communicate peace?  By cultivating a peaceful countenance how may your face be a light to the nations?  When is the last time you lingered with a friend, a guest or even a stranger? 

The families in Syria must find a purpose to face the day, for a future of hope not darkness!  On April 21st, 2013 the Reclaim Sunday blog posting addressed conflict even closer-in Boston after the Marathon Bombing.  The human person wants to extend life to another even if they may have lost sight as Saul prior to his conversion.  A wise priest taught this week how critical formation in 'human' development is to a pastoral heart.  Can you envision a more peaceful world? A more prayerful family? A more patient heart in the presence of one who is a challenge?  Let us stop here.  Let us pray to our Blessed Mother on the occasion of her birth imploring her to guide us in the way of peace:

Hail Mary

Full of Grace the Lord in with thee

Blessed art thou among women and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus!

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us.

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

Sunday is the most precious day of the week, time for reflection, Mass, family, and often religious studies, reflection, writing and ministry.
