The Catholic Way
Breaking Open the Word 2022
A Simple Yet Powerful Two-Page Per Week Process

A bargain at only $1 per week for unlimited copies!

Beginning with Advent 2021 and continuing through Christ the King 2022.

Finally, here is a simple yet powerful process for leading small group reflection on the Sunday Lectionary readings.  Other processes can be overwhelming and simply too much content for a small group session, expecially for the limited time you have for an RCIA dismissal period.  These Breaking Open the Word sessions focus on a single reading each week, with insightful daily life commentary and related discussion questions.

Ann Naffziger brings her decades of experience in small group facilitation, spiritual direction, and leading RCIA into this resource centered on conversion and discipleship.

A two-page handout is provided for each week, which includes:

  • Opening and closing prayers
  • Clear leader instructions
  • Background information on one core lectionary reading
  • A brief reflection on the reading to connect it to everyday experiences and focus the discussion
  • Three discussion questions
  • A beautiful illustration from Jean Denton 

A handout is provided for each Sunday in Year C from Advent 2021 through Christ the King 2022.  In addition, handouts are provided for the Year A Scrutiny readings during Lent.
