March 17th, 2013-Fifth Sunday in Lent

Happy Sunday! We have a new Pope this week!

For those arriving to this site, Welcome! In an effort to provide a voice to those who desire to live more fully the gift of discipleship and worship this website is an outreach to build recognition of the hope of reclaiming Sunday. Let us begin today's posting by celebrating!

Pope Francis I has been elected and accepted this call!

Much will be studied in the coming years of his service. His posture of prayer on the balcony at the Vatican will be one to mirror. We look forward to the fruits of both his love of God and those God has created in his image and likeness.

We have entered the Fifth Sunday in Lent. Is this Lent more vitally active for you in your prayer life? Have you taken the risk to let go of bordom or passivity and cast oneself into study of the faith, reaching out to faithful or disengaged?

How has this Lent changed you?

Arrive Early to Mass

Small changes allow an act of will that is engaged with our conscience reflective of prayer and examination of the conscience. Reclaiming Sunday will be a decision. It will imply turning toward God.

Stay Until the Recessional Hymn is Completed

As hymns are part of the worship, allow attention to the motion to remain for the entire Mass including the final note of the closing hymn. We are looking forward to seeing you, getting to meet you and speaking with you!

Be Still

Whatever is unfolding in your life, cultivate the sacred space within you. As today is Saint Patrick's Day let us grow in Reclaiming Sunday by praying with the beloved Saint:

Christ be with me, Christ within me,

Christ behind me, Christ before me,

Christ beside me, Christ to win me,

Christ to comfort and restore me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,

Christ in hearts of all that love me,

Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

In these days of Lent, let us pray for one another. By Reclaiming Sunday we place God first in our lives and ask for his will in our lives.

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 most precious day of the week, time for reflection, Mass, family, and often religious studies, reflection, writing and ministry.
