Stay Awake! The Gospels Come to Life: Lectio Divina with the Sunday Gospel Readings - Download

Item Number(s): 125538

“All who heard it were amazed …” (Luke 2:18).

Attention to the cultural world of the Bible illuminates these weekly Lectio Divina exercises. Kevin Saunders’s guided reflections help us to hear afresh the attractive, surprising, and even shocking claims of Jesus. Perplexing or too-familiar Gospel stories about the actions, teachings, and claims of Jesus will come to life and spur us to amazement—and more importantly, to grateful reflection as we grow in faith and learn to apply God’s Word to our own lives and our own times.

Each of the three volumes begins with the First Sunday of Advent and concludes with the Solemnity of Christ the King. The titles echo Jesus’s words in the opening Gospel for each year:

Stay Awake! (Matthew, Year A, 2023, 2026, 2029)
Be Alert! (Mark, Year B, 2024, 2027, 2030)
Be Vigilant! (Luke, Year C, 2025, 2028, 2031)

“The Lectio Divina resources by Kevin Saunders are wonderful—so insightful. When I see the e-mail on Monday, I know that my week will fall into place.… I know that so many homilists would jump at the chance to have these wisdom guides at their disposal.… These are treasures that open up the Word.” -- Fr. Michael Stechmann, O.A.R., St. Augustine Priory, Oxnard, California
