Friday, October 30, 2015

lifeandfamilyimageThis past October 25, the 14th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops ended its discussions on the theme “The Vocation and Mission of the Family in the Church and in the Contemporary World”. In order to assist families and parishes, 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 for life and family. The proposed texts for each Sunday of the month of November 2015 include suggestions for the Solemnity of All Saints (November 1) to the First Sunday of Advent (November 29), in addition to the Solemnity of Christ the King (November 22). As usual, these 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 November are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB“.
