Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during October 2013Tuesday, October 1, 2013
The Church focuses the month of October on mission, in our own community and throughout the world. It is in the family where one begins to understand how Baptism calls each of the faithful to be a missionary. To help parishes and families deepen this call to mission, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) again is 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 October 2013 include suggestions from the 27th to the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time. These suggestions can be easily adapted for family and personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations. The texts for the month of October are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB”.
