MEMORIES OF SUNDAY
I am not a very nostalgic person, but for a number of reasons, this feast – more than any other – always brings it out in me. While some of you may remember the era when Eucharistic Processions were prominent, I never really did.
But what I do remember was SunDAY. When my family used to visit my grandparents and we really struggled to even find a gas station that was open. It was a time when retail didn’t dare compete with Church. In fact, the only thing that ever did was football, but most of the time Church was well done by then.
Now it seems there are more sports on Sunday than Saturday. Hockey, Ballet, Baseball, Swimming and the such all seem to force families to make a choice between church and the extra-curriculars that really aren’t so much of an extra anymore.
The question isn’t simply a matter of what you want to do, but what is really necessary – because you just don’t have time to do it all.
