Reflections by Maryknoll missioners relate the Gospel Sunday readings to the world of the poor and marginalized.
Maryknoll missioners bring a special perspective to their reading of the Gospel. From their immersion among the poor in many cultures around the world, they witness daily stories of love, faith, and hope that bring fresh eyes to recognizing Jesus' message and its meaning for our world.
In this book, which follows the Sunday readings for the liturgical year, Maryknoll sisters, priests, brothers, and lay missioners share personal reflections on the Gospel in light of their mission experience. From a refugee camp in Guatemala, to an HIV clinic in Phnom Penh, to embattled civilians in Southern Sudan, stories of compassion, generosity, and forgiveness illuminate the scriptural texts, while also enlarging our solidarity with the human family. The experience of these missioners has enriched their own faith. Reading their reflections on scripture will enrich your own.
