The Lord's Day — Sunday Gospel Reflections (35)
Go deeper into the Sunday Gospel, and make "keeping holy the Sabbath" a more important part of your life and a practice in your family, household or community.
In the Jewish tradition, the new day begins at sundown (you'll see this echoed through into the Catholic tradition of having a Sunday Mass on the Saturday evening, for example). Our Lord's Day celebration begins at Saturday's supper with a short time of prayer, a reading of and reflection on the coming Sunday's Gospel reading, and then grace. After supper, a prayer of thanksgiving is said. The reflection on the Gospel is given either a student or one of our formation team. To bookend the Lord's Day, another short time of prayer precedes the Sunday supper grace, and again a prayer of thanksgiving follows supper.
Our director of Assistant Director of Formation, Nicholas Pierlot, explains more in the above video.
