This easy-to-use pastoral resource provides spiritual nourishment for extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion. Rooted in the Sunday gospels, this indispensable aid invites reverent and prayerful preparation for liturgical ministry. Living LiturgyTM for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion highlights the connections between the Word, Eucharist, and living in service of others. Ministers will find this resource to be formative for their own personal reflection and a helpful tool for facilitating prayer with people who are sick and homebound.
Living LiturgyTM for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion begins with the First Sunday of Advent 2021 and includes the following:
- Gospel readings for each Sunday and other significant liturgical celebrations
- Prompts for personal reflections and prayer
- A separate insert card with the Rite for Administration of Communion to the Sick by an Extraordinary Minister
- Inscription page for the minister's name, ideal for commissioning ministers of the Eucharist
