Reviews - What do customers think about Bringing Home the Gospel: A Weekly Journal for Catholic Parents: The Year of Mark?

Great Resource!  Jul 23, 2007
For the past few Sundays, I have been using this wonderful tool to help me make the most of my hearing of the Sunday gospel. Dunlap's book is a journal of sorts, helping parents to take the readings of Cycle C and relate lessons learned in the gospels to living out our role as parents. Each week, there is a scriptural citation, a reflection on the gospel passage, a family response passage with a suggested topic of discussion or activity, a personal response section with room to write your own reflections and a prompting question, and a section for recording memories from the past week and hopes for the upcoming week.

Every week, we arrive at Mass early to allow my husband and son who play guitar at mass to tune and warm up with the other musicians. During this quiet time, I have the opportunity to read and reflect on the Gospel passage. Dunlap's book is another great tool for helping me to learn as a wife and mother how Jesus' teachings in the gospel can make a difference in my life as I love and serve my family.
 
Spiritually Healthy Families  Jan 5, 2007
Judith Dunlap, the mother of five, has prepared this scripture-based family resource in a format that can be adapted to almost any style, and she offers a number of how-tos in the introduction. Her overall purpose is to help parents and children of all ages remain spiritually healthy and well balanced.

The weekly program is based on the Catholic lectionary for Year C (primarily the gospel of Luke). Each session consists of a brief synopsis of the Sunday gospel, citation from the bible, reflection, and short discussion/journal segments for family and personal response. Many of the reflections grow out of the author's experiences as a mom. The gospel for the Fifth Sunday of Easter, in which Paul speaks of the part patience plays in giving love (1 Corinthians 13:4-5), is a good example. Dunlap recalls how difficult patience was for her when her children were young. With the help of a retreat leader, she tried praying in the morning to "get through lunch," at lunch to make it to dinner, and so on. As she prayed, she became calmer and so did her entire household. She learned that "God's love is mine for the asking, and once I receive it I am free to share it with my children." The reflection is followed by a family discussion on changing habits plus a ritual to signify "turning them over" to God. The personal response involves naming a habit you've tried to overcome and planning a new way to work toward change.

As the example shows, "Bringing Home the Gospel" could easily fit into almost any family schedule, requires no special preparation, and ties in with the Sunday liturgy. Further, Dunlap provides guidance for using the journal and responses, shares "Six Traits of Strong Families" identified in a research survey, and devotes several pages to explaining the liturgical calendar of the Catholic Church.
