Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during Advent and Christmas 2014Friday, November 21, 2014
As part of the national pastoral initiative for life and family, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is again posting possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the Sunday liturgy with the national pastoral initiative. The proposed texts for the last month of 2014 include suggestions from the second Sunday of Advent, December 7, to the Feast of the Holy Family, December 28, including suggestions for Christmas Day. The suggestions for homilies and prayers can be easily adapted for family prayer on Christmas Day and on the Feast of the Holy Family, as well as for personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations throughout Advent and the Christmas season. The texts for the month of December are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB“.
