Important Feast Days Coming Up!

16 Jul

Two feast days of Gospel women are coming up in the next weeks.

July 22 is the feast day of Mary Magdalene, first witness to Jesus’ resurrection. July 29 is the day that honors Martha of Bethany, sister of Mary and Lazarus. These women are pictured for you in Holy Women of Luke’s Gospel.

Mary Magdalene is first witness to Jesus’ resurrection in all four Gospels. She was among the women from Galilee who follow Jesus and provide for him out of their resources. From early Christianity she has been called “the apostle to the apostle”, the bringer of good news to them and to us all. Click here to pray with Mary for resurrection in your own life.

 

Martha of Bethany and her sister Mary welcomed Jesus into their home. Most women remember Martha for the scolding she got from Jesus. “Martha, Martha, you are busy about many things, but your sister Mary has chosen the better part.” To read her story and an up-to-date interpretation, click here. Pray with Martha to resist the social pressures in your own life.

You will need a copy of Holy Women in Luke’s Gospel to meet and pray with the 14 other women he features. Go to goodgroundpress.com to order or call 800-232-5533.

Every Sunday Belongs To Luke

11 Jun

Beginning next week, every Sunday Gospel until Advent is from the Gospel of Luke. For 23 consecutive Sundays we hear Luke’s stories and parables of forgiveness and healing. We experience Jesus standing up for the poor and forgotten, searching for the lost sheep, lost coin, lost souls.

 These powerful stories that feed our faith deserve to have more than a cursory hearing. Sister Joan’s new book, Luke’s Gospel: Written for Us, invites individuals and small groups to spend more time with Luke. Click here to read the Introduction and a sample chapter. Imagine sharing the questions in each chapter with friends or family. Call Lacy at 800-232-5533 to place your order, or visit goodgroundpress.com to order online.
