In a week's time

We follow a pattern throughout the year. Every week we take a break from work and entertainment. One hour, a few minutes more or less. Certainly nothing to sweat about. The liturgy does not attempt to be like what we experience during the week.

Last week we heard the creation account, "And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made."

We measure time with the clock. Those who value time spend it wisely. We use up the time created for us. Even in a secular age, we recognize that there is time that is blessed and sanctified. There is a time for rest.
