Sunday Reflection on the Word
The Living Wordis a weekly resource for your Home Church. These prayers and blessings pages are designed to help parents continue catechesis at home with simple suggestions for family prayers, reflections, and activities. You can find this week's reflection by clicking on the image to the left! Be sure to begin each time by singing A HOUSE OF PRAYERon your CD.
For the Week of August 20:
BEGIN by finding the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time on your Liturgical Calendar.
DISCUSS the conversation questions on your prayer sheet (which can be found by clicking on the Celebrating the Lectionary picture on this page).
Taking it Further...
WATCH and DISCUSS THIS VIDEO ON THE SUNDAY READINGS, AND WRITE SOME REFLECTIONS IN YOUR JOURNAL:
How does this woman show courage in the Gospel? How can you show courage when people are not including others? How can you be more persistent in acting for others?
Think of a situation where someone annoys you because they keep trying to be included. How can you imitate Jesus when reacting to them?
Sunday by Sunday is a weekly resource in your Family Prayer Journal binder. Create a habit of reading the Sunday Scriptures before you come to Sunday Eucharist; you'll find you hear the readings with "practiced ears."
Use Sunday by Sunday to explore the readings in greater depth, perhaps even using it as a springboard for discussion with your spouse or even your older children. New copies are distributed to add to your journal at each Generations of Faith session, or you can subscribe to have Sunday by Sunday delivered to your home at Good Ground Press.
