Happy Sunday!

Where have you found yourself this Sunday?  Were thoughts of God near? Families, young adults, singles, and elderly can be impacted by the culture to live Sunday as just another day , yet at we are conscience of the prayer and action of The Lord's Day.  Even in the restful space of Sunday we await The Lord like the 3pm workers in today's gospel who await the call.  Patience can appear in short supply in the world which can test the unfolding of any plan.  

   For a young adult awaiting a first job offer can be a trial as friends around them have already secured employment.  Or the waiting of a person to speak part of their conversion to a trustful and available person.

 Such as the person who close to the end of life asked if was ok to speak closely to a friend.  Seemingly one who knew everything about this close companion.  Then a truth was uttered, so sweetly it would have been easy to miss... There had been a child in the early years...loved, born and the blessing to a childless couple who longed for answered prayers for a child.  This long time friend had a birth son entrusted to this couple.  The child was an answer to prayer, dear to the selfless love of a young parent in unexpected circumstances...

Stunned silence fell upon the friend listening to a revealed truth from the lips of one's friend who had given life to a son, then life again to a praying adoptive husband and wife.  Relegated to a place deep within, with part breath spoke of this beautiful creation of the son of youth given to this couple thru the gift of adoption.   Silence.  Who would have known?  God knew the love of this parent who gifted life to the son and to the couple.

 The 3:00 person may just be waiting to respond to your invitation to share their journey toward God.  Will we be found listening?  Find some time to listen to some one you love this Sunday.  There is a masterpiece in front of you.

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.
