Buy this as part of our 2020 Year A eResource Bundle to save!

A bargain at only $2 per week for unlimited copies! • Includes large print edition • Covers each Sunday in Year A from Advent 2019 through Christ the King 2020

This downloadable, reproducible resource combines insights on the Sunday readings from two of our other titles into a convenient single-page resource.  Include it weekly in your parish's Sunday bulletin or reproduce for general use in your parish.  It's also a great tool to kick off brief Scripture-based sharing at the beginning of parish meetings or at home.

Each handout includes:

  • A cartoon from The Sunday Flock by Jean Denton, along with a short Bible quotation, and a "Sheepish question" for pondering.  It will get your people's attention!
  • A reflection on one of the Sunday Readings and two questions of the week, drawn from The Catholic Way: Breaking Open the Word by Ann Naffziger.  Her practical, relevant, daily life insights are a great starting point for faith sharing and deeper reflection into the week. 

Purchase of this resource also gives you full free access to The Sunday Flock for the same year, in case you want to use the cartoons in some other way within your parish.

    Word of the Week

    Posted by Mary Pat Boger - St. Mark Parish Administator on Dec 5th 2019

    I ordered this because we are a small parish (under 100) I writing a bulletin and/or sending out thoughtful messages sometime is difficult with what little time I have. This gives me fresh material that I have had positive feedback from the parish members. Thank you!
