Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time-June 19, 2016

Happy Sunday!

This Sunday allowed attendance to a First Mass to a newly ordained priest. It was a time to see the impact of a faith community on nurturing a vocation.  Neighbors shared how they knew the young priest since childhood.  Parishioners recalled the many ways the young man participated in the life of the parish.  He thanked everyone for the vestment.  He is now an another Christ.  The homily was preached with attention on the life of a priest: a human man called from the community who with God's grace does extraordinary things in the cruciform shape of our Lord.  Today was of God.  Well every day is of God, but today seeing a man move toward his bride, the church was a visible sign of God's will.  At the end of mass he presented the crucifix to his father that had hung in his seminary room and placed on the altar at the first mass.  To his mother he presented the linen that dried his newly anointed palms the day before at his ordination Mass.  Tradition holds a deceased mother's hands are wrapped in the cloth so St. Peter will see she is a mother of a priest.  It was extraordinarily moving. thank you for promoting Sunday, as a day of The Lord.  May God grant you choicest blessings!

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.
