The Word of God Each Day follows the liturgical year (Year B) of the Churchs 3-year lectionary cycle, beginning with the season of Advent. Each day has a faith-building, explanatory commentary accompanying the readings to help break open the Word.
At the heart of the book lies the experience of daily prayer. The book will encourage reading of the Bible and listening to and becoming rooted in, the Word of God which is what nourishes the heart, spirit and prayer of every disciple.
The book will be a useful tool for those who wish to follow the daily prayer of the Church and to develop their prayer and knowledge of the Word of God. By the end of the year a full reading of the Gospel of Matthew, and several other sections of the Bible, will have been completed.
