So the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath. – Mark 2:28

I am one who CALLIGRAPHYbelieves that the Sabbath was a celebration of Creation and thus is celebrated with a creative spirit.  Inherent in the Hebrew word for “rest”, nuach, is the sense of renewal by way of re-creation.  The Sabbath is a time devoted to learning from our six days of work, our six days to living life to the fullest, and then to “re-create” our souls with the wisdom and understanding we have gained.  Each Sabbath might be viewed as a mile marker placed on our journey to wisdom, spiritual maturity, and a More Perfect Love.

Sabbath is a day for music and creating music.  Sabbath is a day for poetry and writing poetry.  Sabbath is a day for thoughtful strolls and forming wisdom.  Sabbath is a day for slowing time and quiet conversations.  Sabbath is a time for gathering souls and lifting praise in whatever way you yourself creatively praise.  Sabbath is a time for grace and mercy to be shared in hopeful restoration.  Sabbath is when the Son of Man mends the souls of men and women.

Sabbath is a creative time so that we might then be re-created.

Always in Christ’s Service,

Fr. Charitas de la Cruz
