Sunday Sermon and a Sunset

6 Sep

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
― Albert Einstein

A beautiful Sunday morning, with a slight welcomed morning drizzle, just enough to add a little steamy to the rising temperatures.

Morning Mass was a pleasure. We had a guest Jesuit priest presiding at 9 o’clock. Father Gonzalez was not only eloquent, but pretty darn funny at times. It was a nice change of pace to giggle here and there.

Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus being asked to heal a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment. He touched the man…

“Then looking up to heaven he sighed; and he said to him, ‘Ephphatha,’ that is, ‘Be opened.’35 And his ears were opened, and at once the impediment of his tongue was loosened and he spoke clearly.36 And Jesus ordered them to tell no one about it, but the more he insisted, the more widely they proclaimed it.37 Their admiration was unbounded, and they said, ‘Everything he does is good, he makes the deaf hear and the dumb speak.’”

My take on it… as in so many of the Bible readings, those who have faith and believe in miracles, are rewarded for their complete faith with a miracle.

After Mass, of course, a quick stop for coffee with Jerry and Helene. We sit and chat for less than an hour, but we laugh and giggle so much, it’s almost like sitting at a comedy club. Hey, we should go on the road. “Two Old Girls and a Guy.”

The day wouldn’t be complete without a stunning Sunday sunset.

Happy Sunday, my friends.
