This Sunday



These reflections on the scripture readings for each week are written especially for scripture prayer groups (called Prego) in North Wales as part of St Beuno's Outreach. The groups follow Ignatian methods of prayer, but the reflections can be used by anyone, either individually, or in groups, to deepen their prayer life, consider the Liturgy of the Word, prepare for the Sunday Mass, or if they cannot get to Mass for any reason. A new reflection sheet, written and designed by the St Beuno's Outreach group, is published each week for the following Sunday. 

These leaflets have been found to be of great use to many people in different pastoral situations all over the world.

As I prepare to welcome Jesus once again this Christmas, I reflect for a few moments on my own journey as I wait for the coming of my Lord. It may be that life has been so frantic recently that my progress on the way has been halted by matters too...
