Sea Sunday

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

Sea Sunday is observed this Sunday in the universal Church. It is a day designated to pray for seafarers, those who work in the maritime world and those in the Apostleship of the Seas.

The maritime world and everything that surrounds it is a very hard-working environment. Seafarers and crewmembers on cruise ships spend many months away from home, working long hours under very difficult conditions, earning meagre salaries, with very little or no benefits at all. They often must endure price gouging by unscrupulous persons when they come ashore.  Those who are involved with this industry know the difficulties that those who labor on board the ships face. You may have been on a cruise and noticed the hard-working men and women who served you for long hours but perhaps never stopped to think about their salaries or the working conditions in the very same ship that you were enjoying. Most international trade is done on the backs of hard-working people who spend many hours away from their families working hard on-board merchant ships. Many of us have probably seen the movie “On the Waterfront” depicting the life of stevedores working at the port featuring a very young Marlon Brando with Karl Malden playing the role of a priest whose parish includes the docklands.
