lifeandfamily-2016The 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 July 2017 include suggestions from the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 2 July, to the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 30 July. On 2 July or other occasions to be determined by the local Bishop, parishes may be invited to include the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary as part of local celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation. The official prayer by the Bishop or pastor for the consecration, as well as a shortened version of the prayer for individual use, were prepared by the CCCB and can be found on the CCCB website. The suggestions for homilies and prayers, as well as the official of consecration and the shortened version for individual use, can be easily adapted for family prayer, as well as for personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations. The life and family suggestions for the month of July are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section "Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB".
