The four books in this series are a wonderful aid to help individuals and families stay in touch with the word that is proclaimed in Sunday liturgies. Designed to parallel the lectionary, each book presents prayerful reflections for all the Sundays and holy days of the liturgical year. The three cycles of Ordinary Time are contained in separate books: * Cycle A, for the year 2002 and every third year * Cycle B, for the year 2000 and every third year * Cycle C, for the year 2001 and every third year The lectionary-based reflections for Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter for the entire three-year cycle are contained in a book of their own.
These books are a treasure for individual and family prayers and ideal for liturgy planning. Three sets of prayer reflection questions are offered for each Sunday or holy day: one for use with adults, one for teens, and one for small children. The author also suggests an object to help focus each set of reflections. Each reflection contains a black-and-white icon expressing the reading. An index of themes is included in each book.
