from the Introduction
Bringing Home the Gospel: A Weekly Journal for Catholic Parents is designed for busy parents who want to share the faith with their family and reflect on their day-to-day spiritual journey. Each week, you will find a reflection based on a Sunday Gospel. The readings are primarily from the Gospel of Luke with a few from JohnCycle C in the Church's liturgical calendar. These reflections will help you bring the Word of God home and apply it to your life and help you grow in your relationship with God as individual and as parent.
"Family Response" questions or suggestions give you an opportunity to talk with your children about God and the things that are important to your family. There's plenty of room for you to journal and record on how the Gospel reading touches you in a particular way or relates to something significant happening in your life. Dunlap includes an easy-to-understand overview of the Church's liturgical year and a 10-year liturgical calendar.
Bringing Home the Gospel is a perfect gift for engaged couples, newly married couples, parents and grandparentsthose who want to deepen their understanding of Scripture and live a Gospel life.
