Food for the Soul: Reflections on the Mass Readings – Cycle A

Last year around Christmas, I received a present of the Cycle C version of this book published by Word on Fire. It was such a wonderful way to prepare for the Sunday readings that as soon as the Cycle A version became available, I purchased it. If you are looking for a great Advent/Christmas present, I highly recommend this book which will be Food for the Soul for the entire liturgical year.

In each volume, the three weekly Mass readings are included, each followed by Peter Kreeft's reflections, musings, explanations, and insights on the readings. Peter Kreeft is a Professor of Philosophy at Boston College and a fabulous author of books on theology, philosophy, prayer, logic, and culture. This is not some dry acamic commentary, but Kreeft's philosophical wit and wisdom on display, reminding the reader that what really matters in life and beyond is our relationship with God in Christ through the Holy Spirit.

This would make a great Christmas present for anyone wanting to prepare for Mass, go deeper into the Scriptures, and strengthen their understanding and their faith. It is truly food for the soul.
