On Saturday October 22, 2022, the Cultural Committee of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Tla’ Al-Ali, northwest of Amman, held an event marking the launching of the Arabic-language book, “Homilies of the Liturgical Year A,” by Fr. Manuel Bader. In attendance were parish priests, nuns, and a large number of people.
At the outset of the event, Head of the Cultural Committee of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church Dr. Hiba Abbasi shed light on the life of Fr. Manuel Bader, a Latin Patriarchate priest of Jerusalem, who served in Germany for 46 years after having worked for several years in a number of parishes in Jordan.
Fr. Manuel pointed out that the book consists of two parts, as it provides explanations and meditations for the weekly Holy Gospel passages presented by the Latin Church every Sunday throughout the liturgical year “A”, namely the next liturgical year 2022-2023. He noted that the book is in response to the spiritual need of priests and believers who contemplate the Holy Bible on Sundays. He added that the contents of the book can also be used in evangelical evenings and various spiritual gatherings.
This book enables priests, nuns and Christians to meditate the Sunday Gospel readings in the years marked as “A”. These sermons are posted on the abouna.org website on weekly basis and have been broadcast by Radio Maria from Rome.
