It’s been a while, I know, but I hope I’m still welcome.
This year the Church in England and Wales have been asked to focus on the Scriptures.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has called this initiative ‘God Who Speaks’. http://www.cbcew.org.uk/
This focus has encouraged me to return once more to share my thoughts and reflections on the Sunday Gospel.
Sometimes the reflections might come in the form of questions, or ideas for action, sometimes in a story form, while others might be examples of my lived experience.
All will come with a prayer and will I hope invite us to Weave the Word in to our daily lives.
I’d love to know how you are using these reflections, especially if you are sharing them with family, groups of friends, in a parish or school setting so please drop me a comment or two and of course if you could reference me too that would be wonderful.
1st Sunday of Advent
Year A Mass Readings
Weaving the Word
How will you awaken to the season of Advent?
May we stay awake to those who break communities with violence
and prepare to bring your peace and hope to those we encounter.
