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 use Ignatian ways of praying but the reflections can be used by anyone, either individually, or in groups, to deepen their prayer life, reflect on 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.

God’s love is both profoundly faithful and utterly overwhelming. This is what this Sunday’s readings reveal, with the First Reading showing a love that is also universal. The early disciples, at first limited in their mission, are now convinced that...
