Gospel Reflections and Prayer – Daily Mass Readings
Speak concisely, say much in few words (Sir 32:8)
They say time is a problem, but every problem is a possibility. The challenge to come straight to the point of a message is where the possibility lies.
The daily homilies of Pope Francis have a worldwide appeal and it looks like he has taken the advice of Pope Paul VI to be simple, clear and direct.
This book, Gospel Reflections and Prayer, offers two very short reflections on the daily gospels. These simple and clear reflections would take two minutes at most and a preacher or pastor might use either one or even both. The best book is the one that makes you do your own thinking and this book is intended to help preachers, ministers and priests develop their own homilies.
Where there is no priest or minister available, this book would be an invaluable help to any group who gathers to pray with the day’s Mass Readings.
