Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time- July 30, 2017

Happy Sunday!

Occasionally sudden news arrives.  In the Gospel we hear of finding of the pearl of great price.  Pearls begin with an irritation in a mollusk which produces nacre to cover the irritant making, in time, a pearl.  The sudden word of the passing of a parishioner following mass spread.  She had just served during the liturgy.  Then God called.  We know not the Hour or Day. Have we found a pearl of great price?  Have we left the old to follow the newness of the resurrection?  When we pray for a happy death perhaps this servant teaches us to be found about serving God's word and people.  The disciples were so drawn by Jesus they moved forward to the luster of the nacre of faith in truth, in eternal life!  Readers of our time is short.  Let us be on our way together, unemcumbered by the fear of death. Let us thank God for this moment, this Sunday of new life! May we be found in the house of our enduring God of all hopefulness!

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.
