Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time-Our Lady of Lourdes Februa...
Happy Sunday! Today is also the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. A poor girl named Bernadette saw Our Lady in a grotto in France 18 times. Both Bernadette and her poor family were ridiculed and pressured by the faithful and authorities. The parish priest finally offered shelter when the young vessel communicated the name of the beautiful lady. I am the Immaculate Conception was spoken into Bernadette's innermost being. Having no formal education or receipt of her first Holy Communion, the priest believed her. Her parents first disciplined the young girl, but came to believe her and stood by her. Is our faith strong like Bernadette's to believe the unbelievable? Do we accept miracles happen? What do we believe happens at each and every mass every Sunday? Water and wine become the body and blood of Jesus Christ! The hungry are fed. The lame walk. The mute speak. Bernadette was a woman. A prophet of the most high, who spoke the truth of what she heard and saw. Many miracles have occurred from the stream that began in the grotto that time and now. For people who trust in the Providence of God's will Lourdes water is distributed in the USA at the approved distribution center-The Lourdes Center in Boston (in the view of Fenway Park!). For a small mailing fee bottles of the water may be ordered. May our sores be healed so we in turn heal others this Sunday and every day! As we prepare for Lent beginning this Wednesday, consider how Sunday may be a sanctuary of new life! 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.
