SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY


Would this appeal to you?  It is free and easy to subscribe – anyone can receive it (sign up at www.celebrationpublications.org/dailybread).  This comes from the same publisher as the NCR (National Catholic Reporter), and each brief reflection is written by one of four women who meet regularly to share thoughts on these readings, with the intention of helping preachers and others who pray with the Scriptures of the day.
