At Home with the Word (2021 Edition)
At Home with the Word® guides readers to a deeper understanding of the Sunday Scriptures, providing the readings for the liturgical year, insights from Scripture scholars, and action steps to help parishioners fully connect with the readings from Mass. Equally beneficial for personal, family, or small group use, At Home with the Word is an excellent complement to Sunday Mass.
For each Sunday, At Home with the Word® provides:
- Full texts of the three Scripture readings
- The responsorial psalm
- Insights into the readings written by Scripture scholars
- Suggestions for the practice of hope, faith, and charity
- Additional downloadable questions and activities for catechumenal groups, adult faith-sharing groups, and families
The covers of At Home with the Word® are telling the story of salvation history through eight colorful episodes that depict the unfolding relationship between humanity and the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The series began in 2017 with creation; continued in 2018 with God’s covenant with Abraham, and in 2019 with Moses leading the people across the dry bed of the Red Sea. This year’s cover portrays Ezekiel’s vision in the valley of the dry bones. Future years will show John the Baptist baptizing the Lord, Mary Magdalene running to tell the disciples the news of the Resurrection, Christ returning to his Father at the Ascension, and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Artist Cody F. Miller created the scenes of the covenant with Abraham and Pentecost. William Hernandez painted the vision from Ezekiel, and James B. Janknegt has contributed the other five.
