Find previous issues
There are several convenient ways to access our vast library of information from previous issues of PREPARE THE WORD:
1. If you are already reading a particular Sunday issue and want to find all material relating to that Sunday from the same cycle in previous years, you can click the name of the Sunday (when you hover your cursor over the name of the Sunday, a dialogue box that reads, "Find all content related to ..." will appear). Previous years' content will show up in the resulting search. You can then click the name of the Sunday to read its contents. The dates for the Sundays appear under the tags.
2. If you are already reading any Sunday, you will see on the right-hand side of the screen a "Sundays Library." You can then click the plus button to expand a year, and then click the month you would like to see.
3. Hover your cursor over the words "Homily prep" (at the top of every page of the PREPARE THE WORD site), then "Past weeks," then "Sundays." At the bottom of the page that appears, you will see all past issues of PREPARE THE WORD organized by year. Please click on the year you are interested in, then you can either open each Sunday individually or view the full month's worth of Sundays.
4. Type in the name of the Sunday you are looking for in the grey search box at the very top of the PREPARE THE WORD site. For best results, please spell out ordinal numbers. For example: "Eighteenth Sunday" (instead of 18th Sunday). A page of search results will appear. To narrow down these results, under "Limit results to the following ..." click the box next to Sundays.
To access past issues of Take Five for Faith:
