EVERY SUNDAY IS SUPER
This week-end on Saturday I have a confirmation at Our Lady of the Rosary in Land-0-Lakes, a Mass for young Catholic Athletes at Christ the King in Tampa in the afternoon and tomorrow two Sunday Masses and a parish Visitation at Corpus Christi parish in Temple Terrace. I’d like to see “Big Ben” and “Kurt” keep that schedule. For Catholics, every Sunday is or should be “Super” for it is the Lord’s day. We gather, are nourished by the Word of God and the Eucharist and then are sent renewed, refreshed in body and soul back into the world for another week. There is no need for a play-off to live this Super Sunday experience and no parties extending into the wee hours of the morning in preparation – just plain, simple people worshiping their God and spending time with the greatest “play caller” in human history.
What’s all the hoopla about? We do this every Sunday, not sixteen every Fall, and everyone who keeps holy the Sabbath, attends Mass, spends time with the Lord comes out of the experience feeling like the Most Valuable Player. No one in our Sunday playbook shouts, “I’m going to Disney World” but all can say “I’m going to Mass.”
