Gospel Connections for Teens: Reflections for Sunday Mass, Cycle A is a little volume that covers the first of the three liturgical cycles. It is comprised of two-page "connections" for every Sunday, each containing the day's Gospel reading, a reflection, and questions for meditation. Real-life anecdotes, many selected from the author's own experiences in youth ministry, help to link the Gospel to a teen's everyday life.
Midwest Book Review, May, 2007
Written by Corey Brost, a priest with the Clerics of Saint Viator, Gospel Connections for Teens: Reflections for Sunday Mass, Cycle C is a guide meant to help Christian teens prepare for Sunday Mass. Divided into sections consisting of a Gospel passage, a plain-terms discussion of the passage, and questions for reflection. Each section can be absorbed in 20 minutes or less, making Gospel Connections for Teens ideal for young Christians trying to keep up with a hectic schedule. "If a word or phrase from the Gospel grabs your heart, sit quietly for several minutes, repeating it to yourself and asking God to show you how it applies to your life. Or, reflect and possibly journal on the following question: Does your fear of failure ever stop you from taking risks for your faith?" Though intended especially for Catholic teens, Gospel Connections for Teens is a superb spiritual resource for Christian readers of all ages, and its broad selection of Gospel insights is sure to appeal to Christians of any denomination.
