Even during a time of social isolation because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sunday liturgy continues to offer nourishment for prayer and reflection during the whole week – whether we are meditating on the readings or participating in a television broadcast of the Mass and making a spiritual Communion.


The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) continues to post possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the Sunday liturgy with the national pastoral initiative for life and family.

The proposed texts for the month of May 2021 include suggestions from the 5th Sunday in Easter, 2 May, to the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, 30 May 2021. As usual, the suggestions for homilies and prayers can be easily adapted for family prayer, as well as for personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations.

The texts for the month of May are available on the special Family and Life webpage, under the section “Suggestions for Homilies & Prayers of the Faithful”.
