Living God’s Word – Year B
Living God's Word: Reﬂections on the Sunday Readings for Year B (the second of three volumes) explores the readings of the liturgical year of Mark. Author Terrence Prendergast, S.J., Archbishop of Ottawa and a noted scripture scholar, offers an in-depth introduction to Mark’s Gospel and gives valuable suggestions on how to prepare for Sunday Mass using the readings. Archbishop Prendergast has updated the text, which was originally written as columns in The Catholic Register, Canada‘s national Catholic newspaper, to reﬂect the new lectionary and the understanding of Scripture that emerged from the 2008 Synod of Bishops on Scripture. These careful and thoughtful reﬂections on the Sunday readings offer readers fresh insights into the land and the people of the Bible, which can help shed light on our lives today.
