Ordinary Time

For a large part of the liturgical year, we devote ourselves to listening to the mystery of Christ in all its aspects unfolded as we seek God's truth and understanding.

Questions of the Week

Theme: Jesus, our Redeemer, came to live among us and light the path to Salvation.

Breaking Open the Word
Suggested text for faith sharing: Today’s Gospel from Luke

Step Two: Look into Your Life

Question for Children: What do you want to tell others about Jesus?

Question for Youth: Simeon said that Jesus would be a “light to all nations.” When, where or how do you see the light of Jesus?

Question for Adults: Mary and Joseph took their faith seriously enough to make a return to the Lord of the most precious thing in their lives, their son, whom they presented to God in the Temple. How do you return to God that which is most precious to you?
