So we truly understand those all too familiar Bible passages that we have heard and recite weekly. Fr. John Mack returns to CRTL to enlighten us of his most recent book Journey to the Kingdom, Reflections of the Sunday Gospels where he provides insight for us to better understand these Bible passages that we know so well but truly could not explain.

Journey to the Kingdom takes us through the highlights of the church year and lovingly opens up the Gospel stories to us with patristic and biblical wisdom. Many of the reflections are filled with stories of the saints, as well as observations about living in the twenty-first century that lead us to ask deeper questions about our own lives.
