The Word of God is Living and Active: Reflections on the weekday readings for the liturgical year 2019-2020


Martin Hogan

The Word of God is Living and Active by Martin Hogan is the fourth book in a highly successful series of reflections on the gospel readings for the weekdays of the liturgical year. Beginning on the first Sunday of Advent 2019, it concludes with the feast of Christ the King 2020. Each reflection arises out of engagement with the gospel text and seeks to allow the text to speak to our own human experience.

The book will appeal to priests in parishes who may wish to prepare a short homily for the weekday Mass, as well as to parishioners who wish to prayerfully reflect on the weekday gospel readings. It is also ideal reading for those involved in the growing number of Lectio Divina groups in parishes.
