A Sourcebook about Sunday

Front Cover
Paul Ford, J. Michael Thompson
LiturgyTrainingPublications, 2005 - Sabbath - 219 pages
Just like others in our Sourcebook series, this book includes excerpts from scripture and the liturgy, as well as from prose and poetry both ancient and modern. It helps us prepare for, ponder, and celebrate Sunday. Beginning with the origins of our Sunday observance and lingering over the wisdom of Jewish Shabbot practices, the book moves from Friday through Monday, evoking the many customs and activities that have marked our keeping of the Lord's Day and enabling theological reflection. This book offers materials for liturgists and catechists, for those who plan retreats, and for everyone desiring a richer experience of our weekly Easter. Through these eloquent texts we can come to see the veneration of Sabbath and Sunday -- not as another obligation but as a means to our refreshment, growth, and intimacy with God.
