Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time-October 24th, 2021
Happy Sunday! Christ moves us along as his body, the church. As the fall rowing regatta is this weekend it may be a reflection to learn a lesson or two from the rowers. 1. In a racing shell rowers stroke in unison and find a tempo to row by not overpowering other rowers on the team. The smooth stroke of placing the row blade in the water with a precision is worth looking at for spiritual lessons on working in unison on behalf of the Gospel. 2. Once after a lesson rowers needed to find their own shoes left in a basket on the dock. (Deck shoes are attached to the glide bar which are adjusted to fit with a Velcro strap.) Everyone located their sneakers, except 1 new rower whose shoes were missing! As movement is swift everyone was aligned to hoist out of the water, on command, then hoist upon the air the skull above shoulders to bring it back to shelve in the boathouse. So the shoeless new rower went sock-footed to join the line of teammates, otherwise the weight would have been heavier on all. Once on the boathouse rack, from across the parking lot sprinted another rower waving the missing sneakers. She had taken the wrong pair and found hers in the car!! Jesus takes us from where we are to form us, with shoes or without, into a unified church. May we look after one another this Sunday and always. 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.
