January 5th, 2014-The Epiphany of the Lord

Happy Sunday!

Welcome to 2014! Nearing 14,000 visitors we celebrate the interest in placing Jesus Christ at the center of our lives.  As we travel together we receive the Christmas season in its fullness.  When attempting to locate Christmas plants a couple of days after the 25th only after three stops were the last remnants found!  It was evident that to the market Christmas was over and making way for Valentine's day!  Such gratitude resulted in having our reclaimsunday website along with the Christmas liturgical calendar.  When others are taking Christmas decorations down, today we are invited to keep them up as we celebrate Epiphany Sunday!

Let's read from the Catechism:

"Jesus was born in a humble stable, into a poor family.  Simple shepherds were the first witnesses to this event. In this poverty heaven's glory was made manifest...To become a child in relation to God is the condition for entering the kingdom.  For this, we must humble ourselves and become little...Only when Christ is formed in us will the mystery of Christmas be fulfilled in us." (CCC 525-526)

"The Epiphany is the manifestation of Jesus as Messiah of Israel, Son of God and Savior of the world.  The great feast of Epiphany celebrates the adoration of Jesus by the wise men (magi) from the East, together with his baptism in the Jordan... In the magi, ...the Gospel sees the first fruits of the nations who welcome the good news of salvation through the Incarnation."  (CCC 528)

 How are we preparing to reach out this Sunday and in the days to come?

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