Life and Family Suggestions for Homilies and Prayers of the Faithful During August 2020

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Even during a time of social isolation because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Sunday liturgy continues to offer nourishment for prayer and reflection during the whole week – whether we are meditating on the readings, or participating in a television broadcast of the Mass and making a spiritual Communion.

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 August 2020 include suggestions from the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 2 August, to the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, 30 August. 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 August are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Suggestions for Homilies & Prayers of the Faithful”.
