Sunday, January 12th-The Baptism of the Lord

Happy Sunday!

What a joy is the Christmas season and a mother's gaze!  Thanks to the liturgical calendar and our outreach we experienced the deeper truth of the preciousness of life when in harmony of the Church cycle.  How meaningful it is to still behold the manger scenes and listen to moving Christmas hymns all the while trying to integrate our Catholic identity into our lives thru the grace that is from God.  With today the Baptism of The Lord we consider the true impact of our baptism and that of others.  Pope Francis unveiled: "Every child who is born is a gift of joy and of hope, and every child who is baptized is a miracle of the faith and a feast for the family of God." (@news_va_en) So as we consider your miracle, let us join to pray for all those yet to experience the waters of rebirth.  The Magnificat instructs: "Whenever we look at our sins we see Someone looking at us with love. We can face our sins because of the gaze of that face." p.163-January 2014. As we travel forward into Ordinay Time, may the gaze of all tenderness  warm our hearts where the light of Christ has yet to be fully received. God bless our visitors here and if you could let's remember our God parents this Sunday.  Forward with courage!

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.
