Day By Ordinary Day Volume 4

Daily Reflections on the First Readings, Year 1

by: Mark G. Boyer

The present volume is designed to be used by individuals for private study and prayer and by homilists for study, prayer, and preaching. As such each day of the Season of Ordinary Time follows the same five-part pattern: 1. A title is given to the exercise for the day along with a notation; 2. A few short verses of Scripture taken from the first reading provided in the Lectionary for Mass for each day are then provided; 3. Next is a reflective study of the passage chosen applying valuable background and contextual information concerning the reading. As such it offers new perspectives for study and application; 4. This is followed by a question for personal meditation that functions as a guide for personal appropriation of the message of the Scripture passage. Homilists can use these questions as a basis for sermons or brief homilies; and 5. A prayer summarizing the original theme of the Scripture reading which was studied and explored in the reflection and which served as the foundation for the meditation. This can be used as a fitting conclusion to the General Intercessions or Prayer of the Faithful during the celebration of Mass.
