My maternal grandmother, Mary Jane McNulty, was my most important Christian witness. She had known great struggle and loss and she was a person of prayer and hope. Bishop Noonan spoke about our dear Lord’s message of hope during his closing blessing at the Light of Faith Awards yesterday. “In every Gospel story, Jesus offers hope and that’s what we’re about as his disciples – sharing the message of hope.” The Gospel reading for the Third Sunday of Easter is perhaps the story of hope that resonates most deeply in the hearts of believers. We are the characters in that story. We are Cleopas and his companion struggling to make sense of it all. Jesus meets us in that dark place and our hearts burn with his abiding hope. In celebration of our Risen Life with our Lord, we feature “The Gospel of Luke,” by Dominican Sister Barbara Reid. Produced by Now You Know Media, this audio CD series encompasses 12 talks of 25 minutes each. In an accessible style, this Professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union offers rich preparation for an encounter with our Risen Lord in the third gospel. In Topic 1, “Luke and His Community,” Sr. Reid touches upon the stories unique to Luke’s gospel. Sr. Reid explores Luke’s emphasis on scriptural interpretation and focuses on the Emmaus story in Topic 12: “Fulfillment of Scripture and Empowering Spirit.” Use the on-line Order Form and request this DVD or search related titles with the key word: Luke @ click here or call Dan Hardester or Diane Gallagher@ 407-246-4895 (or 4897).
