Thoughts for the Upper Room is a ready-to-use comprehensive collection of reflections Written in a simple and conversational style. Though they are not specifically arranged day-Wise or cycle-wise, the topics cover almost every day of the liturgical year. Between the two-year weekday and among the three-year Sunday cycles there is some overlapping of themes. They can be adapted for use on any occasion in the life of the community. The reflections on the life of the saints are by no means exhaustive. Besides, the focus is on the readings for the feast day and not on the life of the saint. Of course, the indexes at the end of the book will be of great practical help to the everyday preacher / teacher / speaker to locate the topic / theme needed.
