The purpose of this book is to provide readers with an overview of the Gospel (the Good News) of Matthew, which is proclaimed during Year A of the liturgical cycle.
After an introduction to the Gospel itself, Fr Littleton offers a series of insightful reflections on the gospel readings for each Sunday and major feast day during the year. The reflections focus on the relevance of Matthew's Gospel for everyday life, and will be helpful to priests and laity wishing to engage more fully with the Word of God.
John Littleton, a priest of the Archdiocese of Cashel and Emly, is Director of The Priory Institute, Tallaght, Dublin. He has a particular interest in relating the principles of organisational culture and development to changing Church structures. He is a weekly columnist with The Catholic Times.
