Word for the Weekend of August 10

Time to get your bibles out - or at least link over to the SLU site for this coming weekend's readings and study materials.

Got kids? We won't leave them out - click your way over to Sadlier for some notes to help prepare your children to hear God's word this weekend - at home or on vacation!

I'll be on vacation for a few weeks and so I'll have the unusual experience of not framing my week in terms of homily preparation.

This weekend's scriptures include the wonderful story of Elijah standing in a cave and dealing with strong winds, crushing rocks, fire, earthquakes and - whispers...

Writing to the Romans, Paul laments that his own people have not been quick to accept the gospel but then reiterates how much they have received from God - gifts that are still ours today as followers of Christ...

In the gospel story, Peter and his friends go for a boat ride and end up dealing with strong winds, rough seas, a ghostly apparition, an amazing dare - and near drowning! But someone comes along to save everyone from peril on the sea...

Vacation means no homily notes for your readers? Great. There goes my formation until September! BTW, your post about the language hoopla reminded me that I simply must blog about these maneuvers. I'm going to zoom in on the Latin Mass...in Hebrew. I think. Have a great vacation.
