DOWNLOADING SUNDAY READINGS, PRAYERS AND REFLECTIONS are now at the tip of your fingers brought to you by our friends from the Salesian Society of Don Bosco in the Philippines:
“Word & Life Publications is an apostolic activity of the Salesian Society of St. John Bosco in the Philippines.
Its field of action is the Ministry of the Word, particularly Evangelization and Catechesis, both formal and informal.
This apostolate is carried out through all the means of Social Communication, especially print media, in response to the needs of the local Church, in coordination with the national and local hierarchy, and with the cooperation of committed Catholic individuals and organizations.
Its publications are characterized by their being rooted in the word of God, and Christ-centered; their faithfulness to the teaching of the Church; and their special emphasis on Philippine culture, values and situations, as well as the condition, needs, and aspirations of the young.”
“The specific mission of Word & Life Publications is the preparation, publication, and dissemination of periodicals, books and audio-visuals and any other formation program that can be reproduced or broadcast through the various means of social communication which are and will be made available by Information technology.
These programs will be used for the Christian formation of the people of God in general, and especially of the youth, in faithfulness to the original charism of the Salesian Society of St. John Bosco.”
“The aim of Word & Life Publications is to help its readers / viewers:
|Know their faith better,|
|Defend it when attacked, and|
|Make it the inspiration and guiding force in their daily commitments and prayer life.|
“Word & Life Publications (WLP) started operating 1989 (National Bible Year), with the main aim of helping the people of God to know God’s Word better and put it into practice.
The name WORD & LIFE, dynamically synthesizes this objective, while the logo (the book of the Bible shedding its light on the Philippines) visualizes the role of God’s Word in the life of the Filipino people.
Its mother publication is the bimonthly magazine WORD & LIFE, now available in Filipino and English, and accompanied by a Teacher’s Guide.
In addition to these three periodicals, WLP has been publishing: Exploring God’s Word and the corresponding Teacher’s Notes, The Word of God, Ang Salita ng Diyos, Euchalette, Patnubay sa Misa and Pambatang Katekesis – a series of periodicals which focus on the Word of God and the Sunday liturgical celebrations.
These periodicals are intended to enable our Catholic faithful, and especially Catechists, Lectors, Commentators, Lay Ministers of the Eucharist, the members of BECs and parish mandated organizations to get a good working knowledge of the Biblical readings and themes of every Sunday and major feast days.
WLP has also been serving the catechetical ministry in the Philippine through the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catechism for Filipino Catholics, Katesismo para sa mga Pilipinong Katoliko (both in complete and abridged editions), as well as vital Apostolic Exhortations, such as Evangelium Vitae, and Dies Domini, and CBCP Pastoral Letters such as Landas ng Pagpapakabanal.
Finally, WLP has also greatly contributed to the renewal of popular devotions by publishing a New Way of The Cross, The Trail of Light, and a maze of pamphlets, posters, leaflets, and VCDs on the Rosary.”
