This year we are focussing our Advent and Christmas on the Book of the Prophet Isaiah. Written for a people in dark times, Isaiah provides for us the most extensive prophetic writing about the coming of Jesus and with extraordinary relevance, speak to us today.
Daily reading on FaceBook
We are reading the book together each day on FaceBook from the Message translation. This fresh and radical version raises as many questions as it answers, but it means we hear this amazing words afresh. You can also get the chapters emailed to you each day. Get in touch with Fr J if you’d like them emailed by clicking HERE
