Reflections by Maryknoll missioners – priests, Brothers, Sisters, and lay people – relate the Sunday Gospels to the lives of the people they serve around the world. Maryknoll missioners bring a special perspective to their reading of the Gospels. From their immersion among the poor in many cultures around the world they witness daily stories of love, faith and hope that open new angles on Jesus’ message and its meaning for our world.In this book, which follows the Sunday readings for the liturgical year, Maryknoll sisters, priests, brothers, and lay missioners share personal reflections on the Gospel in light of their mission experience. From a village in Tanzania, to a refugee camp in Central America, to an orphanage in Jamaica, stories of compassion, generosity, and forgiveness illuminate the scriptural texts, while also enlarging our solidarity with the human family. The experience of these missioners has enriched their own faith. Reading their reflections will enrich your own.
