In these sixty services, she focuses on “transformation” through the Second Reading of the lectionary because these readings are “letters from the apostles,” words of support and encouragement to be strong in the faith. Though originally written for the first Christian communities, the Second Readings continue to be highly relevant for Catholic communities today. Hintz invites all who gather in parishes on a regular basis to let these words be part of the fabric of their daily lives and ministry. Each service includes opening and closing prayers, the Scripture reading (citations for all three lectionary cycles are included), time for reflection on the Word, intercessions, and a blessing. Excellent for all parish meetings, including staff meetings, parish council, catechist meetings, RCIA gatherings, and parent meetings.
