Following in the Footsteps of Jesus : Meditations on the Gospels for Year B
Christian life does not arise spontaneously in us. The truth of the Gospel cannot always be arrived at through a process of reasoning. We need to meditate long on the words of Jesus. It is only through familiarity and association with the Gospels that we begin slowly to learn to live like him. This close familiarity with the words of the Gospels brings us into consonance with Jesus, inspires in us his love for the French Flap, Library Bound world, builds up enthusiasm for his project of the Kingdom of God, and infuses his Spirit in us. Without our scarcely noticing it, we become Christians. The life of the church would be transformed if believers, Christian couples, priests, religious, bishops and educators would make the Gospels their bedside book. This publication offers a guide for reading Sunday Gospels and meditating Homilies every week for the Liturgical Cycle.

"In the introduction Pagola makes the point: 'People change from within'. Perhaps one of the most serious problems of our religion is that we do not change, because only what flows through our hearts changes our lives, and frequently is not the vital sap of Jesus that passes through our hearts". - National Federated Priests Council
