Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during November 2016Monday, October 31, 2016
On the Solemnity of Christ the King, November 20, 2016, Pope Francis will preside at the closing celebration of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. Recognizing that the family too is a school of mercy, 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 November 2016 include suggestions from the 32ND Sunday in Ordinary Time, November 6, to the First Sunday of Advent, November 27, in addition to the Solemnity of Christ the King, November 20. 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“.
