September 11, 2016-Twenty Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Happy Sunday!

Today is the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America.  There have been other tradegies since then across the globe.  The Gospel today attends to finding the lost.  In the brief post today may we leave space for all the innocent lost souls to any form of violence.


Please may we stop the endless activity to center on The Lord, who is risen.

For the end to the senseless loss of lives, Lord send us to stand for life.

For the lonely alienated by grief, Lord send us as their friends.

For those with the ongoing effects of post traumatic stress, Lord send us as a calming presence of accompaniment.

For those in fear, Lord send us with your truth to 'Be not afraid!'

For those who have encountered violence, Lord send us as a balm of trust seeking nothing in return but the proclamation of your healing Word.

For those who visit, Lord that a united body we live the 'little Easter' every week- A life risen in you.


In the ash The Lord reaches out to call us into a life of verdant green growth, clean air, reconciliation with enemies and love.  Yes, simply love.  Love endures all things.  What do we need to let go of to follow the peace the world cannot give?  God bless all impacted by 9-11 and all visitors to  Come again.  Meanwhile we are praying for you. Peace!

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.
