Retired Bishop publishes fourth book at age of 91
THE FORMER Bishop of Galloway, Bishop Maurice Taylor, has published a book on the Sunday Gospels, written to provide information, explanation and reflection, and designed to be used by individuals or groups in scriptural discussion and analysis.
Bishop Taylor said: ‘ This book is an attempt on my part to respond to the call to share the gift of faith which God has given to me. It is a kind of companion to an earlier book of mine What Are They Talking About?.
‘I hope it provides information, explanation, reflection, suggestion, resolution. It may be useful, therefore, for individual or communal lectio divina, for small groups’ discussion, for homily preparation or for anyone interested in spending more time with the weekly gospel reading, either before or after hearing it read at Sunday mass.’
Endorsing the book, the present Bishop of Galloway, Bishop William Nolan, said: ‘Once again Bishop Maurice Taylor blends his love of liturgy, his years of pastoral experience and his sharp mind in producing a book which will enhance the celebration of Sunday mass by making the gospel readings more understandable and relevant to many.’
