Make Sunday your Family Day

Weekly family routines can be busy. Between homework, practices, and lessons, many families even find it difficult to sit down for a family meal each day. Sundays are often no different, yet, God intended Sunday to be the day when we rest and reconnect with our greatest blessings. Try these tips for making Sunday your Family Day.

Sunday morning, light a candle and announce that Family Day has begun. If you can do so safely, let it burn all day to remind everyone that God wants us to rest and keep Sunday holy. (Of course, never leave a burning candle unattended.) Make breakfast the night before and put it out so you can all eat together.

Pick a Mass time that everyone can make. Play sacred music while getting dressed.

After Mass, take a walk together, play games, or watch a movie. No matter what you do, try to do it together. No work. No chores.

After dinner, blow out the “Sunday Candle” and feel ready to face the week ahead.

Reflections GOSPEL: John 3:16-18

In today’s gospel reading, Jesus is speaking to a Pharisee named Nicodemus. Nicodemus has come to consult Jesus because he recognizes that Jesus is a great teacher sent by God. However, Nicodemus has not yet recognized that Jesus is the Son of God, who has come to save all who believe in him. Those who hear Jesus and accept his word will have eternal life.

1.) There is a saying, “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” And in a way, there is only “one of us.” Each one of us is unique. As the song says, “There Will Never Be Another You.” Fill in your own name in each of the blank spaces:

God so loved ________________ that he gave his only Son, that ___________________, who believes in him, may have eternal life. God did not send the Son to ________________ to condemn him/her, but that ________________ might be saved through him.
