This Sunday



These reflections on the scripture readings for each week are written and designed especially for scripture prayer groups in Wrexham Diocese as part of St Beuno's Outreach. The groups follow Ignatian methods of prayer, but the reflections 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 Monday 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.
