We hope that you enjoy this first issue of the new publishing year, Emmanuel’s 123rd. I want to thank all of our authors and contributors.

In a special way, thanks to Paul Bernier, SSS, John Barker, OFM, and Barbara Shanahan for writing our scripture reflections (Breaking the Word) for the coming year, and to Dianne Bergant, CSA, for her reflections last year and for setting up this special relationship with scholars and board members from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. A blessed 2018!
