A Sourcebook about Sunday
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.
