Sourcebook about Sunday, A
What do you do on Sunday? Grocery shopping? Laundry? Tasks left over from the
work week? In our overstressed, overscheduled lives we seem always to be busy
with work or busy seeking relief through entertainment. This new addition to the
Sourcebook series helps us reclaim Sunday as the Lord's Day.
Through excerpts from scripture and the liturgy, from prose and poetry both
ancient and modern this book helps us prepare for, ponder, and celebrate Sunday.
Beginning with the origins of our Sunday observance and lingering over the
wisdom of Jewish Shabbot practices, the book moves from Friday through Monday,
evoking the many customs and activities that have marked our keeping of the
Lord's Day and enabling theological reflection.
This book offers materials for
liturgists and catechists, for those who plan retreats, and for everyone
desiring a richer experience of our weekly Easter. Through these eloquent texts
we can come to see the veneration of Sabbath and Sunday?not as another
obligation but as a means to our refreshment, growth, and intimacy with God.
Use this book in a variety of ways:-
. As a way to begin or end each day with a prayer or meditation.
. As a guide to reclaiming Sunday as the Lord's Day.
. As a preparation for preaching, catechists, retreats and other programmes.
