Liturgy Preparation

Liturgy pages composed by Fr Bernard Cotter PP, Newcestown, Bandon, Co Cork. They are offered to the hard-pressed presider as a resource — to be printed out and brought to the altar for Mass, a one-page tool to use in the Liturgy. The pages as previously published by Veritas Publications Ltd in Liturgy Preparation for 2007 (Year C) are added here weekly.

Now that the great feasts of Easter and the Sundays following it are behind us, we return to Ordinary Time and reflect on the challenges to disciples found in the Gospel of Luke.
