Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time-June 28, 2015

Happy Sunday!

Marriage was redefined this week by the Supreme Court, however unchanged is the eternal covenant of love between a man and a woman to unite and procreate.  Sunday allows time for prayer.  This Sunday during a Walk for Life two brides and grooms appeared during the walk to the delight of the crowd!!  One couple, attired in gown and tux stopped to wave with the bridal party to the cheering walkers!  As if that was not enough another bride and groom stood at the window of The Four Seasons waving to the great reception of the walkers outside on a rainy afternoon.  It elicited a spontaneous joyful reply from the walkers...who walked to support life at all stages from the moment of conception to natural death.  Cardinal O'Malley called on those present to serve as orderlies in the Church, a field hospital for souls.  A pro-life state representative encouraged the attendees to: " Never give up!!"  Advocating for God given rights is under fire.  Here on the rain drenched day there was not one but TWO brides and grooms on a mission to testify to a life long union between a husband and wife bearing hope for the children born of that union.  A woman spoke at the podium of her own marriage serving her aging mother in law a contrast from the frightened 20 year old she was earlier  who aborted her child, not fully understanding the consequences of her actions At that time.  Cardinal O'Malley spoke in support of Rachael's Vineyard a post abortion healing ministry as a way to healing.  Even when a right to abortion does not fully access information to those seeking one  the pain caused by it.  So it may be so with tampering with marriage.  The God send were the number of children and young adults present this Sunday!  We are called to examine our lives so that a flourishing is evident in union with God.  God bless and Peace!!

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.
