Reflections on the Scripture Readings for the three cycles of the Sunday lectionary and for Holy Days.
Aside from “Saints Alive” and many historical books, Father Robert F. McNamara wrote a series entitled “All God’s Children” in the early-1980’s with reflections centering on the readings of the liturgical cycle. These reflections are included in this section.
The reflections in question/answer format are by Deacon Paul Rooney, Mary Our Queen Parish, Omaha who sent them to other deacons. This series centers on the Catechism. They are used with his permission. Deacon Paul’s web site is www.angelfire.com/ne/deaconpaul/.
The final reflection on each page is by John Dealy, parishioner of Saint Kateri Parish, whose reflections have been published in the parish bulletin over the years. They are used with his permission.
