Sunday Oct. 14, 2012~Resources for Sunday Mass (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms)
Posted by Dim Bulb on October 9, 2012
This post contains resources (mostly biblical commentaries and homilies) for both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. Updates will be added during the remainder of the week.
TWENTY-EIGHTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
READINGS AND OFFICE:
- Mass Readings in the RNAB Translation. Used in the USA.
- Mass Readings in the NJB Translation. Used in most English speaking countries. Scroll down. I’ve seen conflicting reports concerning whether or not it is the JB, or the NJB that is currently used in most English speaking nations. If anyone knows of a Bishop’s Conference site that has a set up similar to the US Bishop’s site linked above (but using the JB or NJB), please let me know.
- Anglican Use Daily Office. ”Briefly, it is a provision for an “Anglican style” liturgy similar to the Book of Common Prayer as an ecclesiastically approved variant on the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.” More info.
