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 14 (Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Rite)

Posted by Dim Bulb on November 13, 2010

My apologies. I completely forgot to post this on Wednesday.

This post contains resources (mostly biblical) for this Sunday’s Mass for both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

ORDINARY FORM OF THE RITE
33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Readings.

Father Callan on 2 Thess 3:7-12 for Sunday Mass, Nov 14

Bishop MacEvily on 2 Thess 3:7-12 for Sunday Mass, Nov 14.

Aquinas’ Catena Aurea on Luke 21:5-19 for Sunday Mass, Nov 14.

Franciscan Sisters Bible Study Podcast.

Dr Scott Hahn Podcast. Brief, does a good job of highlighting the major theme(s) of the readings.

WORD SUNDAY:

  • MP3 PODCAST In this week’s audio podcast, we discuss substance vs. appearances. We can be wowed by appearances, but, in the end, only substance matters.
  • FIRST READING Malachi 3 drew a shapr line between the saved and the condemned. That line was honor given to YHWH.
  • PSALM Psalm 98 is a perfect example of contagious praise, a song that praises God and encourages others to do the same.
  • SECOND READING 2 Thessalonians addressed the question of want vs. need. We are to help those in need and show those in want the limits of charity.
  • GOSPEL In Luke 21, Jesus chided his followers for their awe over the Temple. He used that moment to teach his followers about the end times.
  • CHILDREN’S READINGS In the story for the first reading, James had head smarts but not heart smarts. He stole money and bragged about it. He couldn’t see the need the poor had for the money was greater than his need. Malachi’s words of judgment were for people like James. In the story for the gospel, Judy and Noelle were surprised by an oral quiz. Smart Judy panicked because she was not prepared. But, average Noelle remained calm because of her preparation. Jesus wants us to prepare and be calm for the final test, just like Noelle.
  • CATECHISM LINK In this week’s Catechsim Link, we investigate the afterlife and the end times.
  • FAMILY ACTIVITY Guard your family against overreacting with a “Family Prayer Box.” Have family members write down their fears and anxieties, then place then in the box. At the end of the week, review the notes and see how God has answered them.

Navarre Bible Commentary:

Lector Notes. Brief notes on historical and theological background. Makes good bulletin insert.

Thoughts From the Early Church. An excerpt from Nilus of Ancyra.

The Scripture in Depth. Usually does a good job of summarizing and relating the readings to one another.

A Summary of the Gospel. From St Vincent Archabbey.

The Bible Workshop. A guide and review to the readings.

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

Bible Study Lessons. From St Charles Borromeo Parish.

EXTRAORDINARY FORM OF THE RITE
25th Sunday after Pentecost.
Note: the readings for the EF are different from those in the OF.

My Notes on1 Thess 1:2-10 for Sunday Mass, Nov 14.

Aquinas’ Catena Aurea on Matt 13:31-35 for Sunday Mass, Nov 14. This was also the gospel of the day on July 26 in the OF.

Cornelius a Lapide on Matt 13:31-35 for Sunday Mass, Nov 14. Also originally posted for the OF reading of July 26.

Homily on the Epistle.

Homily on the Gospel.
