lifeandfamily-2016Following the major celebrations of Holy Week and the Easter Triduum, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) again posts 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 April 2016 include suggestions from the 2ND Sunday of Easter or Divine Mercy Sunday, April 3, to the 5TH Sunday of Easter, April 24. Sunday, April 17, is also the World Day of Prayer for Vocations, and its message this year is on the theme The Church, Mother of Vocations. 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 April are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section "Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB".
