As the Father has sent me,
so I send you

about the letter

The letter, which has an introduction and four sections, takes a synodal approach, emphasizing the theme of listening. Individuals are invited to delve into the letter on their own or in small faith-sharing groups. Instructions for optional ways to use the guide are included inside.

With each section beginning with Scripture and a personal story from Bishop Neary, readers have the opportunity to learn, reflect on questions, pray, respond and develop their own eucharistic love story with Jesus.
