The Divine Lamp

The unfolding of thy words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple…Make thy face shine upon thy servant, and teach me thy statutes

Resources for Sunday Mass, Nov 7 (Ordinary & Extraordinary Forms)

Posted by Dim Bulb on November 3, 2010

This post contains resources (mostly biblical) for this Sunday’s Mass for both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. I hope to update it with a few more posts before Saturday Noon.

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Readings. From the NAB.

My Notes on Psalm 17.

Father Callan’s Commentary on 2 Thess 2:16-3:5.

Aquinas’ Catena Aurea on Luke 20:27-38.

Franciscan Sisters Bible Study Podcast. They usually post the study on Thursdays.

Dr Scott Hahn Podcast. Brief, does a good job of relating the readings.

Word Sunday:

  • MP3 PODCAST In this week’s audio podcast, we explore the argument of Jesus for the resurrection. His argument, and our faith, is based upon the reality of God, a living God, a God active in our lives, even after death.
  • FIRST READING2 Maccabees 7 presented the famous story of the seven sons who died a martyr’s death, in hope of the resurrection. This was the first written example scholars know about that explicitly confirms a belief in the resurrection.
  • PSALM Psalm 17 is a hymn for salvation, even beyond the days troubles and, implicitly, beyond death itself.
  • SECOND READING 2 Thessalonians 2 encouraged readers to pray for the author (St. Paul?) and for reader’s needs. A prayer for me, a prayer for you.
  • GOSPEL In Luke 20, the Sadducees confronted Jesus with a rabbinical argument over the resurrection. Jesus defended the notion of the resurrection by appealing to THE revelation of God on Mt. Sinai. He was the Living God, so, he was alive for even people who have died. In other words, to be a Jew who believed in the Jewish deity, one must believe in the resurrection.
  • CHILDREN’S READINGS In the story for the first reading, a losing high school football team turned the season around in a game against their crosstown rivals. Despite their season, they never gave up hope, just like the sons who died in hope of the resurrection.
  • FAMILY ACTIVITY Our belief in the resurrection is entwined with our belief in heaven. What is heaven really like? Have your family create a picture of serving God in heaven with friends and relatives.

Lector Notes. Brief notes on the historical and theological background. Could make a useful bulletin insert.

John Henry Newman on the Gospel. An excerpt from a sermon (see next link).

The Resurrection of the Body. A sermon by John Henry Newman.

The Scripture in Depth.

A Summary of the Gospel. From St Vincent Archabbey.

The Bible Workshop.

Lectio Divina: A Reading of the Gospel. From the Caremlites.

Bible Study Lessons. From St Charles Borromeo parish.

Twenty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost.

NOTE: The readings in the EF differ from those in the OF. Also, a number of the links below are to online books, you can use the site’s zoom feature to increase the text size if necessary.

My Notes on 1 Thess 1:2-10.

Aquinas’ Catena Aurea on Matt 13:31-35.

UPDATE: Jaun de Maldonado on Matt 13:31-35.

Homily on the Epistle (1 Thess 1:2-10). Scripture reading is included.

Homily on the Gospel (Matt 13:31-35). Scripture reading is included.

I hope to add some stuff to this post latter in the week.
