This personal meditation on the words of Jesus transforms us—more than all the explanations, sermons, and exhortations we read elsewhere, which reach us from the outside. People change from within. Jesus’s words reach within us to transform us unlike any other force. Perhaps this is one of the most serious problems of our religion: too frequently it is not the vital sap of Jesus that passes through our hearts.
The life of the church would be transformed if believers, Christian couples, priests, religious, bishops and educators would make the Gospels their bedside book. This publication offers a guide for reading Sunday Gospels and meditating homilies every week for the liturgical cycle A.
