This book presents the complete texts of the gospel readings for every Sunday throughout the three-year cycle of the Sunday lectionary in the Catholic Church during the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. It may be used for personal study to enhance understanding and appreciation of the Sunday gospel.
Each reading is accompanied by a short commentary, two questions for personal reflection and two prayers, to enable the gospels to be read in the contemplative tradition of Lectio Divina. These reflections have been written by the Revd Dr Adrian Graffy, a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
The gospels are from the Revised New Jerusalem Bible, a bold new rendition of the scriptures designed for study and
proclamation, and acclaimed for the richness, accuracy and inclusivity of its language.
A companion to this volume, The Sunday Gospels for Ordinary Time, will be released in January 2021.
