These lively reflections on the lectionary readings for Year C affirm that all of us can listen for-and hear--God in the ordinary events of daily life. In a personal, poignant, and persuasive manner, Fran Salone-Pelletier probes the readings to make God's word relevant to readers here and now. Her writing is heart-felt and poetic, and it examines the full spectrum of human emotions and responses to the word of God. With each weekly meditation she offers questions for reflection and discussion and a prayer to help readers deepen their spiritual awareness and connection to the Sunday readings. This book can be used by individuals for spiritual reading and reflection, by Scripture study groups to facilitate discussion, for individual or communal retreats, for homily preparation, for breaking open the word with catechumens and candidates, and by any who wish to prepare for a more prayerful experience of Sunday liturgy.
