Trade stressed for blessed
Back-to-school September is such a stressful time for families. Add the reality of COVID-19—with parents trying to work from home, kids’ schedules often up in the air—and it gets all the messier. Even if you don’t have children at home, you probably know people who do and are stressing. How can we all find balance? Honor the sabbath in whatever way you are able, by hitting the pause button—even for a few hours. “Human life has a rhythm of work and rest,” says the Catechism of the Catholic Church. “The institution of the Lord’s Day helps everyone enjoy adequate rest and leisure to cultivate their familial, cultural, social, and religious lives.” Plan ahead for this coming Sunday.
