Renewing ourselves

Liturgical readings will move up one week

By Tony Staley
Compass Editor

After two weeks of preliminary coverage of Renew 2000 Season V, our treatment moves up a notch. This week the focus is on Week One as small groups prepare to begin meeting early next month.

This season, the weekly materials focus on themes, but also include readings used at the Sunday liturgy. Because many Renew groups like to use their weekly gatherings to prepare for the Gospels they will hear at Mass, they choose to anticipate the Sunday readings. Other groups like to review the readings after hearing them at Sunday Mass.

Beginning this week, in order to serve both groups, The Compass will run the readings a week in advance. To make that possible, this week's paper includes the readings for both Oct. 1 and 8.

We know that running the readings a week in advance will require an adjustment. We suggest that readers either keep the entire paper a few extra days, or else pull-out the Renew section and keep it handy. That may be an inconvenience for some - and for that we apologize - but nearly four years ago, we promised to serve as a primary Renew resource for our diocese and this is one way we do it.

By the way, it's not too late to join a Renew group, either as a first-timer or as a returnee. Contact your parish.
