Gospel Reflections 800x800 blue outlineThank you for volunteering to be a part of our 2017 Daily Gospel Reflection Team! This project is always an opportunity for grace – we’re so grateful for your help in putting it together! Now we’ll be working diligently to get you the tools you need to participate in this mission.

Writing Your Reflection:

You signed up for three dates on the calendar – here is the link to that calendar again, so you can check your dates and Gospel reflection.  When your reflection runs on CatholicMom.com, we will link from your reflection to the USCCB daily readings website. Currently, the lectionary readings for most of 2017 can be found online at the USCCB website.

Go here (http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/) and use the calendar on the right hand side of the page to locate your assigned date and the readings for that day. If your reading is not yet online, please consult the USCCB Bible website (which lists all of the books of the bible online) to find your scripture passage.

Our friends at Ave Maria Press have offered our team of volunteers a very special discount on their wonderful book Sacred Reading: The 2017 Guide to Daily PrayerGo to the Ave Maria Press website here and use offer code SR2017 to purchase this book for only $10. This offer ends 10/31/16.

Your reflection is comprised of three parts:

  1. The main reflection – Please reflect in your own words upon the daily gospel passage. This is not intended to be a scholarly or overly pious essay, but rather a personal reflection that will help our readers enter into a deeper understanding of this scripture in their own lives. Please limit your reflection to 300 words or less. All submissions will be edited for consistency and proofread for accuracy. Reflections which are longer than 300 words will be shortened by the editor. For samples of our Daily Gospel Reflections, click here.
  2. Two line prayer – Please write a simple, original two line (or shorter) prayer inspired by your scripture passage.
  3. Reflection question – Please pose a simple one to two line reflection question based upon the scripture passage to guide our readers in reflection and prayer.

When you have written these three parts of your reflection, please proceed to our submission form below or click herePlease complete the submission form for each of your reflections separately (you’ll end up submitting the form three times):
