Jesus' disciples are given this command in John's gospel, and it is a command that extends to every one of his followers, including us. We deepen this mutual indwelling--we in Christ and Christ in us--each Sunday through the word and at the table.
In Abiding Word, Barbara Reid, OP, takes the Sunday experience to every day with accessible weekly meditations on the lectionary readings for year B. This collection of articles, which includes Scripture readings for Sunday and solemnities followed by reflections, allows readers to meditate on the connection between the sacred text and their daily lives. Living with the word day by day invites us into a closer relationship with Christ, the God who became flesh.
Barbara Reid is known for her contributions to 'The Word,' a widely read column in America magazine. Abiding Word showcases some of her finest entries.
