The Treasure of the Word: Commentary on Biblical Readings for Sundays, Feast Days, and Solemnities, Cycle A presents concise and incisive reflections on the treasures one may excavate from the rich veins embedded in the lectionary's readings from the Word of God. Rev. Fr Isidore Okwudili Igwegbe, drawing upon his own prayerful reflection, his encounters with the readings in the company of parishioners, and his extensive ministerial experience, offers these writings to encourage individuals' prayerful encounters with the Scriptures.
Following the tradition and practices of the Catholic Church, The Treasure of the Word groups the commentaries into three sections: Sundays, feast days, and solemnities. In addition, the work reflects upon the lectionary's readings for the occasions of weddings and funerals.
The Treasure of the Word intends to foster a life-changing encounter with the God to whose work the Scriptures give witness. As the Most Rev. Dr Gregory O. Ochiagha notes in his foreword, "These reflections are really a challenge to authentic living in Christ."
Whether your vocation is to the priesthood, religious life, or as a member of the laity, The Treasure of the Word will offer you prayerful, inspired, and wise guidance for digging into the Scriptures and discovering its wealth of support for living faithfully.
