“Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had grown up, and went according to his custom into the synagogue on the sabbath day.” (LK 4: 16)
We also, like Our Lord, keep our customs or rituals. We know how important they are. Keep your rituals, and your rituals will keep you. Our daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly rituals help us to grow and to stay close to each other. Why daily? Because love is a daily activity; we love each other every day. Why weekly? Because every week is like a new small beginning, and we have an option to make the beginning joyful. Why monthly? Because every month gives us a bigger perspective, and we can see the progress. Why yearly? Because we need to celebrate in the most amazing way the beauty of our relationships, our faithful love, and the fruits of our daily actions to protect our love and to grow in love.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor.” (Gospel Acclamation)
