This Sunday

These reflections on the scripture readings for each week are based on those written for scripture prayer groups (called Prego) in North Wales, following Ignatian methods, but can be used by anyone, either individually, or in groups, to deepen their prayer life, consider the Liturgy of the Word, prepare for the Sunday Mass, or if they cannot get to Mass for any reason. A new reflection sheet is published each week for the following Sunday.

These leaflets have been found to be of great use to many people in different pastoral situations all over the world.
