lifeandfamilyimageDuring this Lenten season, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) continues to post possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the Sunday liturgy with the national pastoral initiative for life and family. The proposed texts for the month of March 2016 include suggestions from the 4TH Sunday of Lent, March 6, to the Resurrection of the Lord (Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday), March 26 and 27. In addition, it includes suggestions for the Thursday of the Lord's Supper and the Friday of the Passion of the Lord. The Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord, March 20, is also the Sunday selected for diocesan celebrations of World Youth Day. As usual, the suggestions for homilies and prayers can be easily adapted for family prayer, as well as for personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations. The texts for the month of March are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section "Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB".
