Re­tired Bishop pub­lishes fourth book at age of 91

The Oban Times - - Births, Marriages & Deaths -

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.’
