“The fifteenth day of this seventh month is the LORD’s feast of Booths, which shall continue for seven days. On the first day there shall be a sacred assembly, and you shall do no sort of work. For seven days you shall offer an oblation to the LORD, and on the eighth day you shall again hold a sacred assembly and offer an oblation to the LORD. On that solemn closing you shall do no sort of work.” (LEV 23: 34-36)
Every day and any time during the day is the only time we have for our lives. We have our memories from the past, and we hope that we will have some memories in the future; but the only moment we live is now. The time we have is to love, to grow, to create, to work, to rest and to pray. We also have time for many activities and roles. Sometimes, because there are so many things to do, we become busy being busy. The solution is to remember every day, every week, every month and year, that time is temporary and love is eternal. Practicing our time together, our rituals, we use time for what it was created: to lead us to eternal love in Heaven.
“The word of the Lord remains forever; This is the word that has been proclaimed to you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
