Product Description

While there is no specific feast in the liturgical year that celebrates the preaching of Jesus, the Liturgy of the Word each day recalls Christ's preaching. Father Canatalamessa comments that "mystery" refers to "an event in the life of Jesus that conveys a salvific meaning and is celebrated as such by the church in the liturgy." Cantalamessa discusses why and how the Liturgy of the Word is "nothing other than the liturgical actualization of the preaching of Christ."

Publisher's Description

Those who preach the Word, those who proclaim it from a lectern, and those who hear it will all find something to inspire them to greater appreciation of the mystery of God's Word in this collection of reflections.

The reflections are developed around eight themes: Jesus Began to Preach" addresses the mystery of the Word in salvation history. "Go and Proclaim the Gospel" makes the connection between the Word and the Church. "When I Found Your Words . . ." speaks to those who proclaim the Word. "We Preach Christ Jesus as Lord" reflects on the content of Christian preaching. "For Every Careless Word . . ." warns against confusing human words with the divine Word. "You Will Receive Power from the Holy Spirit" affirms the role of the Holy Spirit in the proclamation of the Word. "Welcome the Word" affirms the place of God's Word in our everyday lives. "The Letter Brings Death But the Spirit Gives Life" attests to the role of the Spirit in the interpretation of the Bible and in the life of the Church.
