New Publication for Advent | Sunday under the Southern Cross

Mary Coloe’s Gospel reflections for each Liturgical year have proved to be very popular across many Christian denominations in Australia. This new revised edition combines each year into one book, with a section for particular occasions, and extended reflections on the Easter Tridium. The reflections emerge from Mary’s years of biblical study, and even more years as one who prays and finds life in the Living Word of God.


Book Details


Mary reflects on the historical context in which the authors for each year – Matthew, Mark and Luke – were writing and extends a warm invitation to a greater intimacy with Jesus through knowledge and understanding. Her interpretation of the gospel messages place them in a modern Australian context, making this book an excellent resource for personal use, as well as for groups in schools and parishes.
