Read inside a complete set of reflections on the daily First Readings from the three year cycle of the Roman Catholic Church. On November 27, 2005, after a noon Mass, Janis began writing personal reflections on the First Reading of the day. These reflections are based on The New Revised Standard Version Bible (NRSV) with additional references to other translations. Early each morning, coffee in hand, she read through the Mass readings for the day, with Francis, her marmalade Gospel-cat, by her side. Then she wrote a short reflection on the First Reading. Janis drew upon her educational background and life experiences to provide insights which you will find illuminating and relevant to your daily life. Three liturgical years of personal reflections and commentary were collected in notebooks, and then compiled into this book.
