Publishers Description

In this volume of weekly reflections on the Sunday Lectionary for Year C, Verna Holyhead moves deftly between the Old and New Testament readings, providing theological context and tying the texts to contemporary concerns. Rich in references to poetry and history, these reflections are infused with the spirit of the Rule of St. Benedict, which invites Christians to take the two Testaments as the truest guides for human life. The supplementary series of conversations between the Liturgy of the Word and the Rule extend the weekly reflection.

As a sourcebook for pastoral ministry or a reference for personal or communal reflection, this volume will assist believers who desire to engage more deeply with the Word.

"Verna Holyhead, SGS, is an Australian Sister of the Good Samaritan of the Order of St. Benedict. She leads retreats, lectures, and writes, with an emphasis on biblical scholarship, liturgical insight, and pastoral challenge."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Scripture as Gateway to Mission  Sep 6, 2006
Verna Holyhead, a sister of the Order of St. Benedict, offers these reflections to encourage readers to respond to the Sunday lectionary readings "with a personal and communal welcome that overflows into mission." She provides a short introduction to each season: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Ordinary Time, then shares two-to three pages of comments on each Sunday's readings.

She frequently refers to poets, writers, and artists to illustrate her insights. The commentary for the Ascension, for example, opens with a description of a contemporary sculpture of Jesus "stretched between heaven and earth like a taut rubber band." In depicting Jesus reaching toward both heaven and earth, Holyhead says, the sculptor has captured a common experience of ambivalence: "We have to leave each other, but it's hard to go."

She also refers to Fra Angelico's 15th century painting of "Agony in the Garden" to expand on the story of Martha (hostess) and Mary (sitting at Jesus' feet) in Luke 10:38-42. The artist depicts Christ kneeling at prayer, Mary reading a book, and Martha praying in a posture similar to that of Jesus. Holyhead observes that many people today "are eager for both social action and service to the disadvantaged, while also searching for a spirituality that is contemplative but does not retreat into introspection."

The insights here are always fresh, relevant, and thought provoking. Holyhead has delivered a fine resource for preachers, teachers, faith-sharing groups, and others who wish to delve deeper into the Sunday readings.
