An End and a Beginning

This brings our Chapter-a-Day journey through the Synoptic Gospels to a close.  We got off track a few times (totally my bad!) but we finished and encountered Jesus in his own Words and allowed Him to speak to us, teach us, and transform us.

At some point, we'll come back and take up John's Gospel. Stay tuned for that.

For now though, Advent is set to begin in a week and we'll, once again, be blessed with the Daily Dose reflections to guide us towards Christmas, and beyond. So, stay tuned for that. That'll start on Sunday, Dec. 2.

Here are some resources if you want to read more about St. Luke and his Gospel.

The Human Face of Jesus: Meditations and Commentary on the Gospel of Luke, by Alfred McBride, O.Praem. (Our Sunday Visitor Press: Huntington, 1992).

Jesus, the Divine Physician: Encountering Christ in the Gospel of Luke, by Christoph Cardinal Schonborn, (Ignatius Press: San Francisco, 2008).

Dear and Glorious Physician: A Novel, by Taylor Caldwell, (Ignatius Press: San Francisco, 2008).

Continue to check back on a daily basis. I've been reading a bit and I've got some book titles to pass along.  It's also time to start reflecting on the Year of Faith that Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed last month.

Lots goin' on!  God is good. Life is good!  

Oh, and go Tigers! And Irish! And Rams!
