lifeandfamily-2016For a seventh consecutive year, 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 first month of 2018 include suggestions from the Epiphany of the Lord, 7 January, to the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 28 January, including suggestions for 1 January, Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God, and World Day of Peace, which were previously published with the suggestions for December 2017. 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 January are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section "Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB".
