I love that you brought up the reading on Shabbat. The entire time I read it, I kept thinking about the Liturgical calendar. While I was converting to Catholicism, I had a friend who kept talking about how special the Liturgical calendar was. She stated that it felt as though it sanctified her time and gave her time to rest. I didn’t really understand what she meant at the time, and I have been struggling a bit with the concept since then. However, the Shabbat reading and your response to it really gave me pause. Thank you for this reflection.
