Donal Neary SJ draws on his long and varied pastoral experience in compiling this series of gospel reflections for Sundays, Year A. Since joining the Jesuits in 1963 he has worked extensively in youth ministry, retreat work and other pastoral ministries.
Formerly Parish Priest at St Francis Xavier’s Church, Gardiner St, Dublin and chaplain at the Mater Dei Institute of Education, he is a popular and prolific author.These reflections will introduce the reader to each Sunday gospel, prepare a congregation to hear the gospel, and provide a valuable aid to homilists and liturgy preparation groups. Given that many of our Sunday gospels are well known and often heard, these reflections may give a fresh insight into a parable or event in the life of Jesus.
The gospel stories and texts are ever old, ever new. This book will help open the mind and hear to the riches of the Scriptures and the richness of personal faith and human growth. Donal Neary SJ is editor of The Sacred Heart Messenger magazine.
